National Writing Day 2017 –Sparks Festival Story Cafe


Beaumont Leys writers group will work with renowned performance poet John Berkavitch to create a Story Cafe at the heart of Beaumont Leys Library.  Berkavitch will lead a writing masterclass with our community writers in preparation for the cross generation Story Cafe late afternoon.  Young people will join the writers to trade stories and craft new poems about childhood, growing up, growing old and siblings.

The Spark Arts For Children is a registered charity which offers children the opportunity to discover and enjoy the arts as audiences, as learners and as creators of their own art. The Spark creates an annual festival for children hosted by venues across Leicester during May and June. Throughout the year we also facilitate and commission a range of events & projects which complement and extend the work of the festival.
