Families are in for a real treat with the return of live performances at Riverside Theatre for the annual Spot On Children’s Festival! And better yet, for the first time ever, you’ll also be able to watch the shows ‘live’ from the comfort of your home – making sure more families can enjoy the magic of theatre these spring school holidays.

Spot on Children's Festival 2020

From Tuesday 29th September to Friday 2nd October, there will be six great shows for families to laugh, sing, dance and be wowed by. And four of these performances will also be streamed live so you can enjoy them from the comfort of your lounge room, starting from just $5! Of course due to covid, the program for Spot On Children’s Festival is smaller than usual. But it’s wonderful that it can still go ahead! Riverside Theatres is an approved covid19 safe venue and a number of safety measures (including reduced audience size and seat spacing) will be in place.

To celebrate Spot On Children’s Festival returning in 2020, we’re giving away family passes to four live shows – Beanies Egg-straordinary Day, the Box Show, Tiptoe Giants: Colour the World and Avocado Smash – thanks to Riverside Theatres.
