Welcome to the new Website!
Here at Fantastic for Families we are very proud (and excited!) to introduce to you our brand new listings website. Fantastic for Families is a national website that strives to offer you inclusive high quality events and activities for families of all shapes and sizes.
After successfully running the month-long national Family Arts Festival for the past three years during October, we felt that now is the time to showcase the exciting events on offer for families across the UK year-round.
We would often receive messages from the hundreds of family-friendly venues and event organisers across the UK, letting us know what they are doing throughout school holidays, during the weekends, and pretty much every day of the week! Aware of the notion that we were excluding so many fantastic art events from our festival, we decided to take the plunge and create a place for families to discover fantastic events and activities all year round.
So back we went to the Fantastic for Families drawing board and got our heads together and formulate the best way to create our new annual listings service. It was a decisive winter for us, planning content for the website, speaking to event organisers and hearing what families wanted from a listings service. We began working on the project in late 2016 and have been consistently tweaking its features ever since.
We wanted to create a website that was easy to navigate, which provided all the important information needed for families making decisions about attending events. We also wanted a website that was easy for event organisers to use when uploading their own listings.
On the site you’ll find thousands of events across the UK that are absolutely fantastic for families. You’ll also be able to find out about the 500+ organisations across the country who have pledged to meet Family Arts Standards, promising to provide an extra-special welcome to family visitors.
We are incredibly happy with the outcome of the website and we hope you are too. Have you got any feedback, good or bad? We’d love to hear it at firstname.lastname@example.org
