Fantastic for Families is the place for families to discover affordable and relevant quality arts and cultural activities from trusted organisers in their local area. It showcases new work that has been created especially for families and features information that is of particular relevance to family groups who want to experience arts and culture together.
You'll find art, craft, theatre, dance, music events and a lot more. You'll also find over 500 organisations who are accredited with the Family Arts Standards badge - a sign of quality and reassurance of an excellent family welcome.
Fantastic for Families began in 2013 as the national Family Arts Festival before becoming a year-round event listings service for families, launched in 2017. During our time as a festival we worked with over 3,000 arts organisations, hosting 20,000 events and reaching 2.2 million family members.
Fantastic for Families is run by the Family Arts Campaign, a national collaborative programme funded by Arts Council England and led by the visual and performing arts sectors to increase levels of arts engagement by families. To find out more about the Campaign and how to get involved as an artist or organisation, please visit familyarts.co.uk.
