At Your School Programme

The 'At Your School' programme brings the excitement of high quality theatre, music and dance to children in their school hall, during the Festival in May.

We appreciate that times are difficult for the arts, for schools and for families which is why we are committed to protecting arts for children through the festival and enabling schools to enjoy these performances at subsidised rates.

How It Works

When you book a show with us, we ask you to check that you hall is big enough and that you can accommodate the performances around lunch set-up. Please note that all performances and workshops must be supervised by school staff at all times.

Prices vary but are around £375/400 for one show or £650/700 for two shows in one day.

We make all contract arrangements with the companies and arrange their travel and accommodation while in Leicester. We will put them in touch with you to make final arrangements for arrival and setting up.

You will be invoiced after the festival and will also be asked for feedback at that time.

The school's programme is announced in a bulletin to all primary schools in the Autumn term, with an additional bulletin in January. To find out about booking a show for your school please contact the Spark Festival on 0116 261 6893 or or join our mailing list.
