The Spark: Igniting the potential of all children through extraordinary arts experiences.

We need your support to continue to ignite the potential of 0-13 year olds and their families.

The Spark Arts for Children exists to ensure that all children in Leicester have the opportunity to access high quality arts, which will spark their imagination and raise their future aspirations.

The 2018 Spark Festival saw over 12,000 children and families participating over 8 amazing days.

Almost 50% of events take place in schools, libraries and community venues and at least 20% of festival goers experienced a free event or activity.

We need Bags of Help!

We have been selected for the customer vote for a Bags of Help grant from Tesco. It's a scheme which gives community projects grants of up to £4,000 – from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores. You can vote for us during January and February 2019.
