We help families discover affordable and relevant arts and cultural activities from trusted organisers in their local area.
Fantastic for Families showcases new work created especially for families. We also feature information for groups wanting to experience arts and culture together.
We want families to have confidence and trust in their local arts and cultural offerings, and to know that they will receive a warm family welcome.
You'll find art, craft, theatre, dance, music events and a lot more. You'll also find over 800 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.
