Bank of Scotland Imaginate Festival
In 2010 the Children’s Festival celebrated its 21st birthday, and took the opportunity for a re-brand that explicitly connected Imaginate with the Children’s Festival.
Shona Reppe’s Cinderella, Wee Stories’ The Sun, The Moon and a Boy Called River, Catherine Wheels’ Pondlife McGurk and Martha, Frozen Charlotte’s Sense and Lu Kemp and Abigail Docherty’s One Thousand Paper Cranes all helped to show off Scotland’s thriving sector.
In the video below, Shona Reppe and Andy Cannon (story teller, and former Artistic Director of Wee Stories) share their highlights from many years of involvement with the festival.

Did you know…?
In 2010, as in many years over the Festival’s history, newspaper articles focussed on the challenging themes within the programme. Headlines like “Sex, violence, death… it must be a show for youngsters” have been a constant over the last 30 years, but the Children’s Festival continues to assert the importance of discussing real world issues with children and young people, as part of safe and creatively stimulating performances.
