The well-loved tale of Puss In Boots, done musical-style, and a puppet play about a trusting bird who gets duped are among the highlights of the returning ACE! Festival.

The upcoming children's arts festival will showcase home-grown and British theatrical productions, as well as creative workshops and free fringe activities for young children and their families.

With the aim of celebrating creativity in children through the arts, local theatre company I Theatre organised the first Ace! Festival in 2009.

This year's festival, which presents five full-length productions, will have a bumper crop of seven workshops and three free events covering the performing and visual arts as well as creative writing.
