The Spark Festival in Schools

Bringing theatre, dance, storytelling and music to children in schools is at the heart of each festival.

The "At Your School" programme brings a range of performances for different primary Key Stages into your school hall - at a subsidised rate.

"In Your Theatre" performances take place in arts venues and may come with accompanying in-school workshops.

Many of the schools performances are accompanied by Resource or Activity Packs and all can stimulate all kinds of further activity in the classroom.

Adopt a School Programme

The Spark Festival is calling for local businesses to 'Adopt a School' as part of an initiative to take shows into schools and help schools take children to Leicester's cultural venues. Enabling children to access exceptional arts events during this year's festival.
