Arts Award is recognised by Arts Council England as strong evidence for schools working towards Artsmark. Thanks to the support of our friends at The Lowry, the Children's Shakespeare Festival Arts Award is available to schools participating in any festival. Your pupils can achieve either 'Discover' or 'Explore' level of Arts Award through a bespoke workbook that sits within the project itself.


Contact our creative producer Matt Wardle for more information.
