The Family Learning Festival inspires a love of learning in family life. It takes place every October and is the biggest festival celebrating and valuing learning as a family.
It’s a national celebration to mark and inspire a love of learning in family life. It takes place in October every year.
Organisations of all types and sizes from schools and children centres, through libraries to museums and galleries put on brilliant and creative events, and showcase ideas and learning opportunities that families can do afterwards. Some Festival events are organised across local areas.
Learning as a family can help us to become confident, lifelong learners with all the benefits that brings – from better health to being happier. Family learning supports children to achieve at school. It can be transformative, helping us to find new passions and interests, and realise our aspirations through further learning.
The Festival is co-ordinated by the Campaign for Learning, the national charity that aims to build a culture of learning everywhere.
