HILTON ALSO FOR CHILDREN (article first published : 1999-09-15)

A Children's Fair forms an integral part of this year's Hilton Arts Festival running at Hilton College over the coming weekend from September 17 to 19. The organisers of the festival believe that it is important to nurture the artistic potential of children in order to create future audiences of arts-literate adults

The two productions aimed at young audiences include the use of puppets. Sun and Moon is an interactive production based on a folktale from Tanganyika in which children are invited to help build a rainbow and a house for the moon and the sun. The second is Milkbird, a fairy tale from Lesotho which tells the Cinderella-like story of Madiepetsana who is saved from her wicked stepmother and sisters by the magical milkbird.

A special children's fairground has been geared for the under 10's which features a jumping castle, pony rides and games. There may also be a mini-train and candy-floss, chips, ice cream and sweets will be for sale. Although the fair is not designed as a child minding service, adults are welcome to let their children see the young people's productions while they see shows of their choice. There will be a team of youthful clowns on-hand to occupy young visitors.
