Our team works closely with schools and community groups so that all children have the opportunity to experience the wonder of Baboró.
We recognise the cost and effort schools and teachers incur to bring their students to our festival. Information about our bus subsidy scheme for schools can be found below. Our festival programme has dedicated performances for schools and groups with subsidised tickets for students and free teacher and SNA tickets. We also provide a dedicated schools box office liaison who assists schools, groups and teachers with their booking and festival experience.
