The Spark Festival

The Spark Festival

The Spark Arts For Children is a registered charity which offers children the opportunity to discover and enjoy the arts as audiences, as learners and as creators of their own art.

The Spark creates an annual festival for children hosted by venues across Leicester during the summer. Throughout the year we also facilitate and commission a range of events & projects which complement and extend the work of the festival.

As an organisation, The Spark collaborates with exciting artists from around the world creating innovative and inspiring work and actively supports the creative development of artists and educators. We know that experiencing the arts at an early age can be life-changing and as an organisation we are working to protect access to the arts for young people.

The Spark is one of Arts Council England's National Portfolio Organisations. We also received funding from Leicester City Council.

Our Vision

The Spark Arts for Children exists to enable children to enjoy the opportunities for discovery offered by the arts as audiences, as learners and as creators of their own art.
