Get ready for....

10-23 August 2020

Coming soon - a 14-day virtual summer arts festival on this website, especially for care experienced children & young people of all ages. Each day we'll open up a new tent for you to explore with things to watch and do, each linked to an artform. Includes puppetry, street theatre, body art and (shhh!) a spy tent.

The festival pages will be open from Monday 10 August - we look forward to welcoming you then.

In the meantime, here's more about festivals....
