Manchester Jazz Festival - Activities for family and children

Escape to Freight Island – outdoor area
Sunday 22 May
12:00 – 14.30

An exciting selection of activities featuring face painting, storytelling, puppet making and music workshops makes up children’s and families morning at Escape to Freight Island.

Creeping Toad is a storyteller, artist and creator of celebrations whose workshops set out to inspire participants and remind them that we can all be creative, we can all enjoy the world around us and we all hold stories inside us. Join in this fun session to make puppet musicians.

Mambo Jambo is a unique participatory acoustic roots duo with a huge array of instruments and infectious energy, who will play a mash-up of jazz, world and roots along with their own compositions. Instruments provided - just bring yourselves and be ready to have some fun!

Pop up Percussion holds fun and creative music workshops for children aged 0 - 6 years old. Through encouraging children to play, sing and move along to popular music, they transport participants to new experiences from as far afield as Japan to visiting a farmyard.

Imagine That face painting will also be on site to create some weird, wonderful and colourful creations for children’s faces.
