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:
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.
