A celebration of the 2017 Festival
The Spark Festival is the largest children's arts festival in England & Wales, taking place every May in Leicester. The festival presents the very best theatre, dance, music, visual arts and digital media events for young people aged 0 - 13 years.
Throughout the festival a series of free creative learning workshops are held at venues across the city as part of the City Play-ground.
The Festival is run by the The Spark Arts for Children, a registered charity.
