The fourth edition of the Get Creative Family Arts Festival presents an extraordinary variety of activities for the whole family, suitable for all age groups, during October 2016. From site-specific public art, award-winning musicals and plays, innovative performances and workshops to spectacular science shows, the festival covers activities across a wide spectrum of disciplines.

Essential listings for families wanting to experience something new can be found at www.familyartsfestival.com where you can search by postcode, date, art form or age suitability. The Family Arts Standards badge tells you that whether they’re a theatre, an art gallery, an orchestra or a dance company, the organisation will be welcoming to families, with helpful staff, good facilities, considered pricing, and information to help families decide what is or isn’t suitable for them and their children.

Organisations including Southbank Centre, Wigmore Hall, National Portrait Gallery, HOME, Opera North, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Battersea Arts Centre, Dance Umbrella, Black Theatre Live, Nottingham Playhouse, Victoria Art Gallery, Artes Mundi and St David’s Hall, are already signed up for this year’s programme.
