Grasshopper will be a dazzling array of events and activities for all families with children in primary school, regardless of social or economic background. The festival will be a combination of theatre, music, poetry and author readings. There will also be a wide range of free activities including arts and crafts, facepainting, storytellings and workshops with professional drama practitioners. All of these will have an underlying environmental message, teaching the next generation the value of the natural world, and how their actions can affect change. Educational activities will include the Recycled Garden, where children will transform rubbish into a unique flower bed, made of repurposed waste – plastic bottles, old bits of fabric and egg cartons.

What we'll deliver:

  • Present an excellent programme of some of the best artists creating work for families in the UK
  • Hold a number of free activities including art and design
  • Hold free free events - music performance, stilt walkers and author storytellings

Why it's a great idea:

Recent cuts have resulted in a lack of activities for families over the summer holidays and a lack of affordable arts provision, in a borough where Child Poverty is estimated to be 59%.

In response to this, Grasshopper will have something for all families, regardless of financial background.

Inclusivity will be at the heart of Grasshopper, with all tickets under £10 and at least 100 tickets to the festival being given to low income families in Lambeth.

Steps to get it done:

  • We have put together an excellent programme of events and activities
  • Lambeth Council Events team are supporting Grasshopper and have given us the site for free
  • Work with community groups to ensure everyone hears about Grasshopper
