Live theatre in libraries: performances for schools

Working with The Spark Arts for Children Inspire Libraries are bringing some of the best performers and theatre companies into libraries just for school groups.


Inspire is part of theatre touring consortium developed by The Spark in partnership with library services in the East Midlands. Being part of the consortium means Inspire Libraries can access live theatre performances in libraries that we are able to offer to schools at a reduced rate.    Each autumn until 2020 will see a performance particularly suited to school audiences.

The Learning Opportunity

Attending a performance in your library will open up a range of learning opportunities for your students.  The First experience can be enhanced with a number of activities, including a bespoke learning framework and a script programme from the show.  

This theatre in libraries programme is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
