Michael Morpurgo

'I am delighted to be Patron of the 2014 Family Arts Festival. The enormous range of events presented across the UK means there will be something to share with all members of the family.

I encourage families to make a day - or a week - of exploring the fun, interesting and entertaining events in their area this autumn half term.'

Michael Morpurgo Patron of the 2014 Family Arts Festival

Something exciting for everyone...

A huge variety of exciting, innovative and interactive events for all generations of the family have already been confirmed for the 2014 festival including dad’s dancing in Battersea; a world premiere WW1-themed concert; free dancing in high rise flats in Birmingham; and a giant family picnic in Bristol.

Family Arts Standards

How do you know if an arts organisation is family-friendly? Now you can look out for arts organisations using the 'Family Arts Standards' badge.

The Standards have been developed so that everyone knows which arts organisations offer a fantastic welcome to families, and they’ll all be listed on this website. You can read the Family Arts Standards and find out more about them here.
