Theatre, Dance, Music, Spoken Word, Visual Arts, Circus, AND Cinema all combine in this year's Get Creative Family Arts Festival. 2000 events have been added so far, with more being announced every day.

Recently added events include three great family shows at Basingstoke's Haymarket, creative workshops at the V&A, and a packed day of free puppetry fun in Tunbridge Wells.
