Journey into a rainforest, a land before time and outer space! Each week, Alchemy Arts and Summerhall transform the environment with visuals, music and décor so children (and adults) can explore through various activities, some of the most exciting creatures on our planet (and beyond!). A creative space for families to invent, relax and play together with a team of professional artists.  There will also be opportunities for participants to contribute writing, drawings and ideas to a journal made by and for kids that will be distributed as part of the Edinburgh Art Festival.
