Kids are taking over HOTA, Home of the Arts these September school holidays, with a playful program on offer for children and parents alike from September 28 to October 1.

One of the highlight activities is Haircuts by Children, which will see kids take the reins of their very own salon and offer free haircuts.

Another highlight event of HOTA’s school holiday program is the Children Are Stinky show presented by Circus Trick Tease, which will feature a talented acrobatic duo on a mission to prove that kids “stink”.

HOTA’s Arts Theatre will also host a Kids Comedy Hour, with a cracking line-up of renowned comedy talent, including the amazing purple puppet comedian, Randy Feltface, Madame Lark, Mickey D and Chores.

If your kids love art and destruction, they will love Boxwars where they will use nothing but cardboard to construct mega mysterious creations and costumes that culminate in the battle of battles.
