World Book Day
Each year we love to celebrate World Book Day by providing support to schools to curate arts festivals and hosting our own events. During lockdown we engaged with over 15,000 children across Greater Manchester for our World Book Day spudtastic Supertato event.

Theatre Tours
We programme touring theatre to GM libraries and communities. In response to restrictions we programmed a 10 day tour of Greater Manchester school bubbles in June with the award winning Little Angel Theatre to inspire children to 'Reach for the Stars'.

Arts Award & Artsmark
We are a registered Artsmark Partner and Arts Award Centre. Young People can achieve their Arts Award through projects such as Reverb which saw young people write and record studio tracks with acclaimed musicians Testament and Swing Ting’s Balraj Samrai.

Create
Create is one of the UK’s leading charities empowering lives through inclusive creative arts. Thanks to a partnership with the festival they have decided to take the plunge and a Create Northwest Hub has been born! We are supporting them to bring disabled and non-disabled young people together to write songs and music about what is important to them, whilst building confidence and breaking down barriers to participation.
