Sydney Festival couldn’t come at a better time for kids and families. It’s halfway through the school holidays and long after they’ve bored of their festive gifts, plus parents are feeling the pinch from all that entertaining – so what better way to keep children inquisitive and active than through the family-friendly events taking place in January’s biggest arts and culture festival. There’s plenty of free and cheap options in the CBD and Parramatta to cater for all ages, from trapezing workshops to creating digital art with other children in Japan.
