Best 2018 UK Art Festivals For Children
Why Bring A Child To An Art Festival?
Introducing a young person to arts and culture early is a great way to enrich their lives. It will also give them an edge when they learn about art in school since they will have been exposed to it early. Taking a child to an arts festival is a great way to integrate them into the local community, learn about the ways of many different people and inspire them to create art of their own.
The Top Art Festivals To Take A Child To
- The Royston Arts Festival
This relatively recent event was designed to encourage the local people in the area of Royston to showcase their artistic skills. The festival includes workshops, competitions, live musical performances and the exhibition of artwork from local people.
As an incentive to get younger people involved the festival has held creative writing competitions for those aged between 5 to 9 and 10 to 17. The entire event has been set up since its inception by Creative Royston, a group of Hertfordshire volunteers.
The festival often holds over 50 events for visitors to enjoy. These are usually held by local community societies and clubs. The main aim of the entire festival is to give people in the area access to professional artists and their fine work.
- Fishguard International Music Festival
Held in the West of Wales this musical event always attracts large crowds and is considered one of the most important and anticipated events in the area. It has been going since 1969 and is a fantastic opportunity for parents to introduce their children to some of the many different musical genres from throughout the world.
Whether it’s jazz, rock, classical or any other popular genre there are many live events across North Pembrokeshire to take your children to see. It is an inexpensive way to show them all the different types of music out there.
