Arts & Kids Week is a national campaign to get children across the country excited about the arts events taking place on their doorstep.
Every October half term we team up with Classic FM to celebrate and promote the many children’s arts events that take place across the country. On air, online and in print, we work together to encourage all children across the UK to visit their local arts venue.
We want to encourage children and young people to visit their local arts venue and be inspired!
As part of Arts & Kids Week, you can:
- Search hundreds of children’s events on our website to find the best activities during October half term.
- Listen to Classic FM on 100-102 FM for special features and information about Children & the Arts.
Ten Years of Arts & Kids Week
We have a long history of working in partnership with Classic FM. For almost ten years Classic FM has partnered with Children & the Arts to promote and praise the best children’s arts event taking place in the October half term, as well as helping us to bring the joys of classical music to disadvantaged children across the UK through support of project such as MusicQuest. You can find out more by visiting the Classic FM website or by listening to the Arts & Kids Week 2010 podcasts.
Arts & Kids Week is supported by Classic FM Presenter and Children & the Arts Ambassador Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.
