The Spark Festival 2021


Activity Description

We are bringing world class performers, artists and musicians to Leicester for our annual festival - combining digital and live performance, finding the best ways possible for your children to have the chance to experience them.

Leicester has had a tougher time than most with COVID, and we're proud that The Spark Festival will be here after a long year to bring the colour of culture into February's still dark days. The value of cultural 'sunlight' for mental wellbeing is enormous, and we will be harnessing its power to shine on as many children as we can reach.
