Clicket at the Festivals Day 12
We know from some of our colleagues who are in the family way, how much more planning it must take for a family outing at the festivals - unlike some of us singletons who can just rock up whenever we wanted. Which is why Clicket has an itinerary builder that might come in handy. Do read our previous blog on a family of four who used My Clicket itinerary to help them plan their festival experience.
It is the ClicketKids mission to help you and your family open up a world of fun and get the most out of the festivals. So in today's blog, we recommend Family Friendly Literature, Art, Theatre events in August to help you in a small way towards planning great adventures in Edinburgh this August.
In the first of our ClicketKids presents video, we went on The Magnificent Edinburgh Escapade - an interactive game that took us on a problem solving hunt through the city centre - specially created for the Edinburgh Art Festival by The House of Fairy Tales. Have a look at the video and in the rest of our blog, we link those events we've recommended so it's easy for you to book, purchase or simply pop into your My Clicket itinerary builder!
Here's wishing you and your family, great adventures at events in Edinburgh this August!
