Apple ‘N’ Spice wins national Best Family Arts Activity Award

Apple ‘N’ Spice has won a Fantastic for Families Award in the Best Family Arts Activity category.

Inspired by the stories of Ramayana and Snow White, Apple ‘N’ Spice is the magical tale of two stepmothers: one from the East and one from the West. Their stories unfold through an interactive, multicultural dance performance, presenting a charming fairytale that offers an original way for children to discover Indian storytelling.

Awards are given by Family Arts Campaign, the national organisation for arts engagement and families. Now in its tenth year, Fantastic for Families Awards is an annual programme open to UK-based cultural organisations or cultural activity organisers, providing creative opportunities, activities, or initiatives for families and older people.

Krishna Zivraj-Nair, Sanskruti’s Artistic Director, said, “We are absolutely thrilled and elated that our East-West fusion dance show Apple ‘N’ Spice has been chosen as one of the winners of the Best Family Arts Activity by Fantastic for Families.

“This means so much to us, as an organisation that wants to bring theatre and dance to children across the UK.”

Sanskruti Dance was one of seven organisations that won awards at an event held on 22 November. A representative from Fantastic for Families said:

“Each year, the Fantastic For Families Awards celebrate the wealth of outstanding creative provision for families and older audiences across the nation. This year’s winners have blown us away, with their incredible events, activities and initiatives – opening opportunities for more collaboration and creativity.”

Apple ‘N’ Spice will continue to tour venues across the UK in 2024, with performances already booked in Cornwall, Glasgow and Luton.
