Newry in Northern Ireland is a young city – it has the largest population of children in the UK. So, it’s only appropriate that it’s home to one of the country’s most active and innovative children’s arts organisations. Sticky Fingers has been running for 10 years and provides creative arts opportunities for children aged 12 and under, running a large programme of events and workshops including creative environmental projects, theatre, music and performances and commissioning public art works inspired by the ideas of children.
Sticky Fingers also runs an annual forest camp for up to 60 children and puts on an international children’s festival.This festival, funded by The National Lottery, used to be biannual but has proved so popular among parents and children that Sticky Fingers is ensuring it takes place every year. With theatre companies coming from as far away as the USA and Japan, it has a truly international flavour.Alongside the theatre for babies and children, young people can also get involved with physical workshops and quirky activities. Children love the festival because it’s unique and fun. It engages them but parents can also enjoy it.
