Unforgettable arts experiences for your classroom and home schooling

We are delighted to let you know that this year’s Spark Festival At Your School programme is taking place online as a festival for home schooling brilliance.

The festival offers a vibrant programme of online performances and experiences from world class performers, artists and theatre companies and presents the best ways possible for your children to have the chance to experience them.

It’s really easy to get involved. When you sign up you will receive a link to a video performance for your children to watch at a time that is right for them. Each performance comes with specially created lesson plans and resources to share with children at home and those still in the classroom.

We know how hard you have been working to provide structure while broadening minds and helping children grow.
