Little Eat: Special Offers For Families Eating Out as Spark Festival Begins

Posted: Tue, 28 May 2013 22:18

The Spark returns to Leicester between 29 May until 9 June and to celebrate the start of the festival, a new promotion, Little Eat, is being launched with special offers for families eating out in the city. This year's children's arts festival features hundreds of fantastic events at venues across the city including theatre, puppetry, dance, visual art, music and urban and digital arts for ages 0-13. On Wednesday 29 May from 4pm, families can enjoy amazing offers at restaurants and cafes and make the festival's first day last even longer.

Following the huge success of Big Eat which sees restaurants across the city offering special deals to coincide with Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival, Little Eat is a new promotion especially for families on the first day of The Spark. Participating restaurants include Nando's, Pizza Hut, YO! Sushi, handmade burgerCo., Bella Italia, and Cafe Bruxelles. Offers vary at each establishment and range from kids eating free with paying adults at Nando's, Pizza Hut and Bella Italia, kids eating for £1 at handmade burger Co., and 20% off the bill plus free non alcoholic 'mocktails' for children at Cafe Bruxelles.

Some of the venues hosting Spark Festival events are also taking part in the Little Eat promotion. At Curve children's meals are half price when they are eating with a full paying adult and at Phoenix families can 'eat, drink and get creative' with each child receiving a free cake and chef's hat to decorate and keep plus there is a special 'kids' favourites' menu including 'build your own ice cream'.

City Mayor Peter Soulsby said:

"Little Eat is a wonderful way to showcase the variety of restaurants, bars and cafés the city has to offer – and perhaps introduce younger diners to foods they haven't tried before.

"Leicester's reputation for great food – and its reputation for great festivals, like The Spark – are two key themes of our bid to become the next UK City of Culture.

"Little Eat will bring food, festivals and families together for what should be a great half-term night out."
