Little Feet

Little Feet Festival of Children’s Theatre

The Little Feet Festival of Children’s Theatre is a joint venture between tutti frutti and York Theatre Royal held at York Theatre Royal every two years. The next festival will take place in spring 2018.

Each themed programme includes an exciting range of shows, workshops, craft and storytelling activities for 0-12 year olds, and introduces children to the magic of theatre and the arts using a variety of spaces. The festival transfroms York Theatre Royal into an imaginative and playful space for young audiences. Families can enjoy the child friendly atmosphere and see some of the best touring theatre for children and young people. In 2016 the natural environment themed festival included performances by two international companies from France and Italy.

 “Great festival! Loved all the activities!”- Audience member at 2014 Little Feet Festival

“A super experience for the children overall. A very welcoming environment upon entry into the Theatre and then just the right mix of listening and participation during the performance”- Audience Member at 2014 Little Feet Festival



In June 2018 we will host our fifth festival and are currently looking for companies to be included in the programme. Next year, we will also be running Little Feet at the Carriageworks in Leeds.

In order to create another highly successful festival, we are looking for unusual and innovative, high quality work for children.  Large and small scale spaces are available for performances, interactive experiences and workshops, plus outdoor areas.  There is no restriction on the size, age or art form of any company interested in being part of the festival. We are interested in high quality and diverse work in any discipline that reflects the society we live in. Productions must be touring during the week commencing Monday 11th June 2018.


Please let us know if we can see your work at the Edinburgh Festival or elsewhere.

All relevant information should be sent before Friday 1st September 2017 to with the subject line Little Feet.
