WHO WE ARE
Linton Children’s Book Festival – books, kids and fun, since 2006!
Every two years, since 2006, we have been inspiring young readers from the village of Linton and surrounding communities in South Cambridgeshire. Our festival is packed with FREE fun activities for children aged 2-12: creative workshops, storytelling, presentations by favourite authors, poets and illustrators, hands-on arts & crafts, music…and so much more!
We are now getting ready for our 8th event. The main festival weekend is 16-17 May 2020 at Linton Village College, with lots of additional activities ahead of this big weekend.
Linton Children’s Book Festival is a registered charity run by volunteers dedicated to promoting children’s literacy, creativity and love of books. All our events are free of charge – we are entirely funded by grants, sponsorship and donations. Our festival is a highly anticipated and much loved event. It attracts around 1,000 visitors each day of the main weekend at Linton Village College.
We work closely with Linton’s four schools (Infants, Juniors, Village College and Special School), holding in-school author talks to raise excitement for the festival. This year we plan to include other area schools, too.
We love involving our whole village in the festival. This year we’re teaming up with Linton Youth Music for a very special event at St Mary’s Church, we’ll join in with a “Love Your Library Day” at Linton library, hold a round-the-village scavenger hunt and special after-school story-times and arrange other fun activities around Linton.
We hope you will come and join us in May 2020.
