The South Ken Kids Festival has at heart to reach out across London and beyond. Over 40 schools from nurseries to secondary schools are involved in the festival each year.

From 15 to 21 November we offer different workshops, talks with authors, film screenings, performance, translation, film-making and virtual reality: brilliantly bilingual throughout.

Join us at the Institut français or let the festival come to you!
