The Junc Yard

Welcome to The Junc Yard, The Festival’s very own dedicated children and family zone.

At The Junc Yard, you and your family can take part in creating your own cabaret, story telling, and family focused performances and interactive arts activities. There are events, activities and performances for all ages and something that the whole family will enjoy.

Events throughout the day are geared toward young children and school visits, while evening events are targeted at families and youth.
