Curve Leicester to showcase LGBTQ+ Artist's Palaver Party

Fatt Projects to present an exciting show as part of The Spark Festival.

Palaver Party fun comes to Spark Festival Leicester

Palaver Party, a public performance specifically designed for children and family audiences by a team of LGBTQ+* artists, will show at Curve on February 18.

The show celebrates different kinds of families, such as where some people have two mums or two dads.

Suitable for children aged 3-8 years, it has been designed to create a fun, celebratory, and inclusive atmosphere that aims to provide high-quality and engaging entertainment.

It will spread the message that it's OK to love whoever you want - sometimes princesses marry princesses and sometimes princes marry princes!

The event, by Fatt Projects, is being presented as part of The Spark Festival, an annual children’s Arts Festival held in Leicester in February.

"We want young people attending these events to understand that they can be whatever they want to be and to feel like they have the power within them to create the things they want.

"Most importantly, we want everyone who attends to have fun, enjoy themselves, and feel joyful," Said a Palaver Party spokesperson.

Palaver Parties are fun, interactive, glittery events that will include disco-style music and dancing, interactive crafting activities hosted by a diverse line-up of professional artists all dressed in fabulous and fantastical outfits.

Audiences have the option to participate as little or as much as they want.

Through gentle encouragement and participating in a range of activities over the course of the party or event children will be able to feel more confident and feel empowered to express themselves.

All the artists involved in creating the project were asked 'what did you need to see when you were younger?' and have used this as a way to create an event that speaks to their experiences of growing up as an LGBTQ+ person.

The overall aim is to spread a message of love and acceptance. And the message is that all people are equal, and that the things that make us different are the things we should celebrate about ourselves, rather than feeling embarrassed or sad about them.

See the show for one day only on February 18 at 2pm. Tickets can be purchased online from Curve.
