Spark Children's Arts Festival in Leicester enables children to discover, enjoy and celebrate the arts - as audiences, learners, and as creators of their own art. The festival began as one-off project in 2003, and is now the largest independent arts festival specifically for young people in England and Wales.
All events and activities are specially developed for children aged 0-13 and their families, taking place in arts venues, schools and neighbourhood venues. The festival creates a sense of excitement and celebration and its format encourages families to sample a range of different arts activities available.
Spark Festival 2012 - Jump in performances
The Spark Festival and Curve theatre are delighted to be part of the Jump In Festival, bringing 3 exciting international companies to Leicester.
The East Midlands Children's Theatre Consortium has been working together since 2005 to bring high quality international work aimed at children and families to the region. In 2012, we have gone a giant step further. And we are thrilled to bring four fantastic companies to the East Midlands as part of the regional Cultural Olympiad.
The performances -- from Scotland, Italy, Canada and Spain -- and all award-winning. Each one is different, and ticket prices suit all pockets. The performances are made especially for children and their families; so whether you're aged two or 92, Jump In will knock your socks off!
With funding from Legacy Trust UK through Igniting Ambition, and Arts Council England, the consortium has expanded to introduce this brilliant, colourful and vibrant work to Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire.
