Kent's International Family Arts Festival is back Sat 27 & Sun 28 August 2022!

As ever, bOing! is totally free to enter so you can relax and enjoy a brilliant festival day with lots of free, outdoor performances and activities. bOing is a family festival, meaning its not just for children – we programme fantastic artists from across the UK and beyond who make work for all ages.

We also have a number of ticketed indoor performances that you can buy tickets for. This year we are excited to host the world premiere of Alice by Jasmin Vardimon Company, Dybwikdans return with a performance for babies, and we have the return of the bOing! favourite – the Architects of Air Luminarium. Plus many more.

Tickets are on sale now! So put bOing! in your diary and see you on 27 & 28 August.

Over the next few weeks we will also be adding a number of Workshops and Film Screenings to the programme. You can keep up to date with bOing! news at or on our Facebook Page.


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
