International Youth Arts Festival 2021

2 July 2021 - 11 July 2021

Creative Youth presents

International Youth Arts Festival (IYAF) is back this July and we can’t wait to celebrate the return of live performance with you. Join us for a summer filled with theatre, circus, puppetry, music and more by talented emerging artists from across the country. IYAF will bring the Rose Theatre and outdoor locations across the town centre alive with brilliant stories and performances for all ages.  

Don’t know where to begin? This year’s festival highlight, Hotel Paradiso, is a critically acclaimed hilarious and fun circus spectacular for all the family. 

International Youth Arts Festival is delivered by Kingston-based charity, Creative Youth. Creative Youth enables young people to realise their potential through the arts and allows young people in Kingston, and surrounding areas, to be involved in innovative, original, ambitious projects working with artists of the highest quality.
