The Spark Arts for Children

The Spark 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.

Founded 2004

  • Mission statement

    The Spark gives children from 0-13 opportunities to immerse themselves in the arts by experiencing a wide range of high quality work, which inspires, empowers and educates.

    Through the presentation of an annual festival in Leicester schools, theatres and community venues, and through collaboration with other agencies, we offer children the space to discover their own skills, passions and potential, as audience, participants and creators of their own work.

    Outside of the festival The Spark facilitates additional activities, which complement and extend the work of the festival. The Spark works to increase its impact on the creation and presentation of arts for children in the UK and beyond.
