A quarter of a century ago, Baboró was founded to fly the flag for brilliant child-focused arts experiences. At the heart of its foundation is a vision of access to the arts for all children, inspired by the UN Convention on the Rights of The Child.

For our 25th festival, Baboró will be celebrating the rights of the child with a strand of events and performances dedicated to giving children a platform for their voice to be heard, a space for expression and, of course, a festival experience to be enjoyed with family and friends.

Two Baboró commissions, a co-commission and a touring exhibition, will be central to these celebrations and part of our festival programme in October.

We look forward to welcoming you to our 25th festival from October 4th - 17th. The full programme and box office will be announced at the end of August.
