2019 Summer Nostos Festival: Kids & Family Activities

Nostos University
Nostos University, which has already become a favorite with our young “brainiacs,” is back again, and this year’s topic is the Rubik’s Cube! With Ernő Rubik, the creator of the eponymous cube as its official guest, Nostos University has planned a series of activities around this puzzling object. Rubik himself, in one of his very rare public appearances, will be giving a lecture (25/6), while Cubing champions will amaze us with their spectacular skills, teach us the secrets of the cube, and offer us solving tips in a daily program of events for young and old. (all days)

The Chessboard Runaways: A dream play with the music by George Kouroupos and libretto by Eugene Trivizas 
Following a fierce chess battle the White Queen secretly meets the Black Knight. Frustrated by their monotonous black and white universe and inspired by the piano music played by a little girl, they declare their love and escape in order to explore the wonderful and dangerous world beyond the borders of the chessboard. The white king, the jealous black Queen and the rest of the chess pieces are determined to pursue, capture and punish the runaways.

Comedy Circus & Circus Outdoors
Greek stand-up comedian Giorgos Chatzipavlou and magician Mark Mitton host a spectacular show for all ages, featuring artists from all over the world! An amazing show, “Comedy Circus” is a truly unique experience thanks to a group of artists who will amuse and excite you, who will surprise you and make you cry out with joy, and, above all, who will thrill you with all they present on stage. (23 & 24/6)

In addition, renowned street artists will astonish and entertain SNFCC visitors with their breathtaking and daring feats in a series of unscheduled appearances under the title “Circus Outdoors.” (all days)

Finally, a series of sports and leisure activities, educational workshops, and spectacular shows await you and your children for endless hours of fun and entertainment. All you have to do is bring along your hat, your sunscreen, a change of clothes, and your high spirits!
