The Family Arts Festival is the first UK-wide festival including theatre, dance, music, circus and visual arts events. It is designed to increase family participation in the arts and is also building on the momentum of the London 2012 Festival and Cultural Olympiad. The Festival will take place from 18 October to 3 November with a range of events across various venues, including theatres, museums and arts centres

Highlights in London include:

- Britten’s The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra presented by the London Philharmonic Orchestra & CBeebies' Chris Jarvis at the Royal Festival Hall

- Jazz classics for all the family at artsdepot in North Finchley, presented by Natalie Williams and some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians

- a new promenade performance ‘Muse Of Fire’ for families at Shakespeare’s Globe

- ‘In A Deep Dark Wood’, an interactive show about a girl who bravely ventures into a mysterious wood, staged by Gobbledegook in association with MOKO Dance at Sadler’s Wells

The Family Arts Festival has also joined forces with the Campaign for Drawing’s Big Draw. Launched in 2000, The Big Draw is dedicated to showing that drawing is accessible, fun and invaluable in education and everyday life. Big Draw events in London for the Family Arts Festival include the opportunity to become an aviation artist at the Royal Air Force Museum, and creating a giant monster puppet at the Museum of London
