Celebrate and inspire a love of learning in family life!

Learning as a family helps children and adults to become confident, lifelong learners. It helps children develop essential skills and achieve at school. It helps grown-ups to reconnect to learning and transform their lives. Family learning can help families tackle disadvantage and improve their life chances. This year's theme aims to inspire a love of shared learning through curiosity.  

Curiosity is a strong and natural desire to know about something. It is an intrinsic, instinctual and essential part of life. It is linked to all areas of human development that involve learning, skill development or knowledge acquisition. 

Organisations of all types and sizes from schools and children centres, through libraries to museums and galleries are running brilliant and creative events, and showcasing ideas and learning opportunities that families can do afterwards. Some Festival events are being organised across local areas.
