<< FRI EVE: A community screening at the British Library of the creative education documentary 'Most Likely to Succeed' with a guest panel to discuss points raised.

<< SAT DAY: 'Creative Schools' : a line-up of world-class talks/performances/workshops showcasing the amazing work being down in our school communities and why.

<< SAT EVE: #DANCECONNECTS : a dance party in Kings Cross for everyone who is travelling down and wants to stay over as well as those who just don't want to go home (well not too early anyway! ;-) But be warned, we're fussy about our dance music. We're going to blow the roof off with 'Dr Dance'.
