CHILDREN'S CULTURE FESTIVAL OPENS TODAY!

Hundreds of kids from schools around Reykjavík attended a special event today at the Harpa Concert Hall to celebrate the start of the city’s fourth Children's Culture Festival.

The event, which began this morning with an opening ceremony in Eldborg, the main hall at Harpa, continues throughout the day with other performances, such as Ég veit eina stjörnu (I know a star), the youth music awards, Drullumall (a concert) and a dance festival.

The Reykjavík Children’s Culture Festival is a six day event (29th April – 4th May, 2014) created exclusively for and by the city’s children. Spanning the entire spectrum of cultural activities from dance to drama, the key emphasis is firmly placed on the creative participation of the children themselves. During this week-long celebration of youth, the whole city becomes a stage, showcasing a variety of glittering events, performances and creativity.
