National Theatre of Scotland in association with leading children’s arts organisations Starcatchers and Imaginate connects with families at home during the COVID-19 crisis.

Play Dates is a fun digital programme of interactive and entertaining workshops and activities for children and young people, plus their parents and carers, created by some of Scotland’s leading creative practitioners and freelance artists.

From Tuesday to Friday over the next eight weeks, a new Play Dates workshop will be released every day here on our website and on our social media channels, for online audiences to access, take part in and enjoy. All the activities will be free.
