(14 March) THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED. We're really sorry but Ade has had to cancel this event as his basketball team have just qualified for the next round of the league tournament and the match is in Spain during the Festival weekend. We hope Ade will join us in 2020.

The Box Office will be in touch to refund tickets.

Ade is the new kid on Parsons Road, and it's not easy to make friends when you look different to everyone else…Meet Paralympian and TV presenter Ade Adepitan and hear about his exciting new book, Ade's Amazing Ade-ventures: Battle of Cyborg Cat, inspired by his own experience of moving to London from Nigeria.

Find out how he adapted to life in a new country and explore all the amazing things he has done since then from the Paralympics to travelling the world.

Under 12s must be accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.

Bringing more than one child to the Children’s Festival at the ACE Centre?
Parallel events mean that your older child can attend an event on their own as long as we know you are in the building. You can then accompany your younger child to their event. You will only need one ticket for yourself.
