The children’s programme is a permanent feature of the Africa Festival. This year it will again take place in a circus tent, so that our youngest visitors have their own little area and are protected if it rains. The Senegalese author and musician Ibrahima Ndiaye will lead trough the programme. He knows how to entertain his young audience with his own unique mix of traditional storytelling, pantomime, percussion, dancing and singing.
The African artistic ensemble Adesa from Ghana will leave the children amazed. This year, from Friday to Sunday, they’ll feature an African clown and an acrobatics show in the multi-tent and a street parade. Children of all ages will also be provided with space and entertainment outside of the children’s tent: “Karibuni Watoto – Welcome, Children!” will be the name of the closed-off children’s area, where there will be a huge amount of games on offer, away from the hustle and bustle of the main festival. We’re pleased that s.Oliver is helping us with the organisation of the children’s area this year. There will be a breastfeeding area, nappy-changing facilities and relaxation possibilities in the “Family Area”.
The children’s area is open daily from noon to 8:00 pm, and entrance is free of charge for visitors of the festival.
