A festival that brings living art to you.
The Festival of Small Things is a celebration of true encounters, intimate exchanges and the joy of things you can hold.
A project in four primary schools and two action-packed days of live events across Nottingham headlined our Festival with theatre taking place in market places, under a trees and on pavements.
We continue with provocations in a card for discussion over a cup of tea with a friend, cards enclosing seeds to grow and offer hope and drama to be listened to on a cassette player. This is a festival of the unexpected, of the unshowy, of the quiet experience.
