Imaginate Inspiring Futures Appeal

Imaginate (Charity No. SC016437) is asking for your help to enable more children to experience the world’s best theatre and dance at the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival. 

Throughout 2019, we aim to raise £10K to help make the Children's Festival more accessible than ever before. The money raised through this appeal will support activities which are difficult to fund by other means, namely:

• Free Festival tickets for disadvantaged schools and groups

• An 80% transport subsidy for all schools who attend the Festival, no matter how far they are travelling from in Scotland

• British Sign Language interpreted performances for D/deaf children

• Relaxed performances for children with autism 

Your donation will help give more children, parents and teachers from all backgrounds spaces to think, dream and be inspired together.
