About the Show

The Kingdom of Childhood welcomes all young explorers, to embark on two weekends buzzing with artistic discovery and the wonders of nature. 

Armenian Park’s greenery is transformed into a cosy arts playground, with a whirlwind of ticketed art activities and social art corners to delve into. At the Mak-Ipo Kitchen, children can roll up their sleeves and make hearty and sweet desserts to fill their bellies!

Far away from phones and tablets, young explorers aged 6 to 13 are invited to let their imaginations soar and breathe in the fresh outdoor air. Accompanying adults can read, rest and relax under the gentle and watchful eye of trees, to take a pause from the hustle and bustle as their little ones run free and laugh the day away. Art activities are also available for adults who wish to escape the stresses of working life. 

It is time to reconnect with nature and disconnect from technology, to create, play and imagine once more.
