What is Fantastic for Families?

Fantastic for Families has been developed by the Family Arts Campaign to help families to discover affordable and quality arts activities from trusted organisers in their local area. It will showcase new work that has been created especially for families and feature information that is relevant to family groups to experience arts and culture together.

Fantastic for Families began in 2013 as the national Family Arts Festival before becoming a year-round event listings service for families, launched in 2017. We've worked with over 3,000 arts organisations, hosting 2,000 events and reaching 2.2 million family members.

How do I list my event?

Please register on the website first, where you will then be able to add your organisation’s details (or request to join an existing organisation). Once your account has been approved or your request to join an existing organisation has been approved, you will be able to add and manage your event listings.

What are the benefits of being involved?

The site will provide a cost-and time-effective means to reach new family audiences through our free listings, which are fed to a wide variety of partner sites. We also offer a range of paid-for advertising opportunities which offer featured organisations the opportunity to reach a wide range of engaged family audiences throughout the UK Listing your events with Fantastic for Families means you can:

  • Benefit from free publicity with one upload through the listings and national marketing & press campaign to families including online and print marketing, social media advertisements and PR activity led centrally by the Family Arts Campaign
  • Communicate your family-friendly offer to potential family audiences by engaging with a well-respected and trusted family brand
  • Be a part of this national movement to improve and champion arts provision for families, joining a huge network of like-minded arts organisations

Do I have to pay?

No. Fantastic for Families is free to all event organisers. It is run by the Family Arts Campaign and is supported by funding from Arts Council England.
