LIAF presents ‘Amazing Animations’ at Barbican (U)

February 22, 2020
11:00 am

12 short animated films from all around the world featuring lots of very cheeky animals and feisty children in a whole load of extraordinary adventures. For children of all ages but especially perfect for 0-7 year-olds.

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
