Families at the Fringe Hub

Daywalkers rejoice, for the Fringe Hub has you well and truly covered during the school holidays. We’ve selected seven splendid kid-friendly shows from across our smorgasbord of Independent program events and we’re showcasing them in our Hub venues. From comedy to puppetry, circus to music, our Family program is the perfect antidote to those holiday blues, so bring the little ones, the pram, the whole shemozzle and check out some of the best family shows the Fringe has to offer.

Melbourne Fringe presents
Kids Club

Why should grown-ups have all the fun? Our brand new Kids Club makes sure that our youngest festival goers get to party too. The Kids Club is a friendly space for kids to run wild, whoever they are and whatever they like—we don’t give a hoot. Although there will almost certainly be hooting going on, as tykes come together to celebrate – Fringe style. And you know what that means – it will be unexpected, hilarious, accessible, inclusive...And did we mention FREE?

With valet pram parking on site just inside the North Melbourne Town Hall by the box office, leave you troubles at the door and sit back and relax in any number of our great kids shows or in the drop in activities at the Kids Club. You can also purchase coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or a babycchinno along the way from Bean To Melbourne who will be set up in the foyer for the Kids Club daily.

We’re sending up the Fringe bat signal and calling on kids everywhere to bust out their best capes. The future of our city is in their hands. Try not to drop it.
