The Girl of Ink and Stars - Audio Drama

A tale of maps, myth and monsters

Following her map and an ancient myth, Isabella discovers that deep beneath the dry rivers and smoky mountains, a fiery legend is stirring from its sleep...

A gripping audio drama performed over three podcasts for adventurers aged 7+

Secret Stories

Stories from the heart of Belgrave, the golden mile of Leicester.

Beautiful and often funny stories told across continents and generations, pausing to catch up on the gossip with Nanni and Nanna (Grandma and Grandad).

About Our Charity

The Spark gives children opportunities to immerse themselves in the arts by experiencing a wide range of high quality work that inspires, empowers and educates.

Through the presentation of an annual festival, a cultural education and community programme and through the production of our own work we offer children spaces to discover their own skills, passions and potential, as audience, participants and creators of their own work.

The Spark works to increase its impact on the creation and presentation of arts for children locally, in the UK, in Europe and Internationally.

The Spark Arts For Children is a registered charity.
