The biggest arts and culture festival in the country is back for the eighth time (you can find our top picks here, and a guide to where to stay and what to do between events here), and the kids shouldn’t have to miss out on any of the action. So here are our highlights for families at the George Town Festival 2017.
With the aim of making the festival and the arts more accessible to the public, five mini concerts will be held throughout the month. Organised by veteran lawyer and poet Cecil Rajendra, these concerts will be staged at five different kopitiams specially chosen for their historical and heritage significance. Come for a cuppa and experience everyday Penang and free live music.
Various locations. Aug 5, 12, 18, 25 & Sep 2. 6.30pm. Free admission.
