Family Arts Festival 2014

The Family Arts Festival will return in autumn 2015! Watch this space...


In the 2013 autumn half term, the inaugural Family Arts Festival (run by the team who brought you the Cultural Olympiad) took place up and down the country. From music to theatre, circus, art and dance, the Festival was designed with all generations in mind – not just the kids – and was a great success.

The LSO was delighted to be involved in this ground-breaking Festival, and is now looking forward to this year's incarnation, which takes place from 17 October to 2 November 2014 (NB: autumn half term is the week of 27 October). See below for a list of our Family Festival events.
