About The Festival

The Spark Festival presents unforgettable arts experiences for young people aged 0-13. The Festival takes place each year over seven days in February across the city.

The programme includes professional performances of dance, theatre and music in schools and in venues, hands on workshops in the creative arts and free family drop in activities in city venues, community centres and libraries.

Complementing these activities are the school projects, giving pupils the opportunity to collaborate and perform with world class artists.

The Festival is run by the The Spark Arts for Children, a registered charity based in Leicester creating extraordinary experiences for children, sparking creativity and change.
