Arts And Kids Week 2014: what's on?

24 October 2014, 09:22 | Updated: 15 December 2016, 11:50

With so many things happening during Arts And Kids week this year, we thought we'd pick out a few of the highlights.

Arts & Kids Week is a national campaign to get children across the country excited about the arts events taking place on their doorstep.

Every October half-term, Classic FM teams up with The Prince's Foundation for Children and the Arts to put on Arts and Kids Week. Together, we promote the many children’s arts events that take place across the country. On air, online and in print, we work together to encourage all children across the UK to visit their local arts venue.

We want to encourage children and young people to visit their local arts venue and be inspired!
