Creative Sparks


Free after school sessions for children to explore their creativity and curiosity!

'Creative Sparks’ is Ignite!’s after school programme for children aged 5-10 years.

The programme has taken place each Monday at St Ann’s Valley Library since 2022 and since 2023 in Strelley Road Library. 

Children take part in a wide range of creative activities, including games, experiments, exhibitions and performances. They work with the Ignite! team and meet ‘special guests’ - volunteers and researchers from Nottingham's universities and local industry. 

Children are supported to develop their confidence, self-belief, communication skills, have the opportunity to explore their own interests and build relationships with children from their local community throughout the sessions.

The sessions in St Ann’s are funded by the Renewal Trust's Area Based Grant from Nottingham City Council, and the Strelley Road sessions are funded by Catalent Pharma Solutions.

Book places for the New Term!

Sessions will be back at St Ann's Library from Monday 6th November until 18th December 2023.

These sessions have a maximum capacity of 20 children so booking is essential.

Sessions will begin at Strelley Road Library from Wednesday 8th November until 20th December 2023.

These sessions have a maximum capacity of 15 children so booking is essential.

We do encourage children to attend every week, but please book on a weekly basis, rather than all sessions in one go, to make sure that your child/children can attend and that there is enough space for everyone. Please let us know if you are unable to attend so that we can offer the session to another child.
