The Family Rave Festival sold out in a flash, but fear not fun lovers – due to popular demand, we have decided to release 50 more tickets for this fantastic event.
For the first time ever, we are closing down the whole centre for one special day, celebrating 25 years of creativity at the Attenborough Arts Centre – this rave is not one to be missed. Have fun in the sun with this full day event filled with festival frolics, fun and fabulousness. Featuring a variety of activities such as art and craft workshops, forest school activities, dance and yoga workshops and even an eco glitter station. The festival has something for everyone and is perfect for the family, friends and even your pet.
Break it down on the dancefloor with our two family rave sessions, come dressed in full colour, shiny sequins and your best festival outfit! Be dazzled by live performances from local organizations such as Napur Arts, a dance academy based in The Golden Mile of Leicester which invites people of all ages and backgrounds to discover the joy of South Asian dance. Learn the magic of Capoeira, a Martial art originating from Brazil which combines acrobatics, dance and music. The party doesn’t stop there – venture into the café and you will find the ballooning walkabout and, of course, the glitter station!
For the arts and crafts lover we have an abundance of activities to get those creative juices flowing. Want to develop your drawing skills? Come to the life drawing workshop where you can immerse yourself in the expressive potential of the humble pencil and mixed media: develop your use of line, tone and shading to create your very own masterpieces. Join Rose Croft as she shares her passion for the craft of traditional candle dipping workshop, where you can create your very own dipped candles. Croft is a strong believer in enjoying the process as much as the end result so be sure to give this a go, especially if you’ve never done candle dipping before. We even have bracelet making so that you can craft something truly beautiful and unique to wear as a memento for yourself or a loved one.
If rest and relaxation is more your style, there will be lots of different relaxation activities for you to enjoy. In gallery 2 you will find yoga classes by the fabulous Kim Woods who has been practicing yoga for almost 20 years and will be delivering workshops which promote deep rest and better sleep.
