The Spark Festival - Give it a go

Takeover: Leicester Museum & Art Gallery

Saturday 18 May 2024

Come and experience this free creative event planned and delivered by Leicester children for families from across the city.

The Spark Arts for Children presents

Takeover: Leicester Museum & Art Gallery

Transforming Leicester Museum & Art Gallery into a hub of creativity, joy, and excitement with lots of free activities for all the family, children are taking over Leicester and The Spark festival.

Working alongside artist Sam Redway, children from four Leicester schools are letting their imaginations run riot and will take over Leicester Museum and Gallery and DMU.

Schools involved are Falcons Primary, Mayflower Primary, Mellor Community Primary, and Queensmead Primary Academy.    

The children are working away behind the scenes planning the events, placing children at the centre of the festival as decision-makers.

Sign-up to our Families and events newsletter and follow us on social media to see what they get up to. They’re in charge and we can’t wait to see what they come up with!
