The theme for 2012 was Courage and Bravery – taken from the Paralympics values – and the festival is challenging families in Brighton & Hove to feel the fear and do it anyway!
Highlights included Dancing in the Dark, Daring Dress Up, a Mass Sea Swim and a clay workshop to make a Scary Monster.
The 2012 Children’s Festival was co-produced with Brighton and Hove City Council on behalf of Brighton and Hove Arts Commission. In 2013, due to funding and resource restrictions, Komedia Productions took the children’s festival in-house to run as an independent venture called Hijack.
