The 2014 Family Arts Festival brings an incredible variety of quality family arts events, with over 2,000 events across the UK.
Taking place during Autumn half term from 17 October to 2 November, events cover theatre, art, music, dance, literature, film, circus and more with many events free.
This year’s patron former Children’s Laureate and bestselling author of War Horse Michael Morpurgo comments:
“The enormous range of events presented across the UK means there will be something to delight, and share with, all members of the family across the generations. I encourage families to make a day – or a week – of exploring the fun, interesting and entertaining events in your area this autumn half term.”
Event listings are now live on www.familyartsfestival.com where families can search for events in their area and by genre, age-range and interest. New events are uploaded daily. The Family Arts Festival is partnering for a second year running with The Big Draw, which offers thousands of drawing activities connecting people of all ages with museums, outdoor spaces, artists, designers, illustrators and each other. The Big Draw (www.thebigdraw.org) is an initiative of The Campaign for Drawing.
