Next festival: 10 - 16 February 2020
To ensure The Spark Festival continues to have as big an impact on the children of Leicester/shire as possible, we are repositioning its regular slot on the calendar from May to February.
This shift gives us the opportunity to increase the Festival links to the school curriculum, ensuring children in Leicester/shire thrive through rich and adventurous experiences. It also enables us to develop our own product through our Vital Spark programme; and to co-curate work in communities, placing Spark artists alongside The Festival's usual mix of the best international work for young people and families.
While we are busy making changes behind the scenes at the festival we will still be working in neighbourhoods, in cultural education and touring family theatre to libraries so keep in touch and look out for more exciting Festival news soon.
