The concept of “Family Leisure” is lovely, really, but not always very thrilling? Why can’t we share our interests with our kids?
Parents gather round, Sonar Kids is something you can do with the kids that you’ll actually both enjoy. Something original and new, with over 40 exciting workshops to do, the aim of Sonar Kids is to open up tiny minds with a winning formula of Music + Technology + Education
Enter a world created for kids, think Willy Wonkas factory, without the death traps, everything shaped to kiddy height, sounds for questioning and receptive ears.

    • Hi John,
      Unfortunately I don’t think there are, but if you’re bringing kids, Sonar kids festival should definately be something for the both of you.
