The Spark Festival returns to Phoenix with the best in digital creativity - interactive artworks, creative games and amazing animations.

You can play with a wonderful array of colours and shapes in a series of interactive artworks by brilliant Midlands-based artist Will Hurt; work with Welsh collective Pyka to turn old, unloved objects into awesome musical instruments or enjoy a mini-silent disco where you can change the sounds by dancing!

There'll be a host of virtual and augmented reality experiences for you to try – from making 3D sculptures in an immersive virtual world, to playing court jester in the court of a cartoon king.

And for our Spark Festival cinema, our friends at Flatpack have put together a brilliant selection of animated short films from across the world.

Look out for more free activities taking place across the weekend at venues across the city.
