The Spark Festival At Your School Programme is here

Placing the Arts at the Heart of Learning

Offering a chance to find joy in truly being ourselves - The Spark Festival will be back in schools and Leicester venues in February 2022 with a programme that will bring a simple curiosity to discovering who we are. The eclectic mix of dance, theatre and music aims to:

  • Offer a holistic blend of live and digital performances to ensure that everyone has the chance to experience them
  • Support children's personal growth to discover an authentic self
  • Provide shared creative and cultural experiences for the whole school community
  • Enhance your classroom learning with FREE lesson plans and resources

This is your opportunity to see the extraordinary in the now seemingly ordinary.

Please get in touch to book your Spark Festival 2022 performance and find out more about the opportunities available.
