What’s on

Meet The Presenters!

The Book Festival weekend is jam-packed with free family-friendly activities – talks by authors and illustrators, workshops, storytelling, poetry, and music, as well as school visits and garden story times in the run up to the event!

This year we have a fantastic line-up including Isabel Thomas (The Bedtime Book of Impossible Questions), Andy Stanton (Mr Gum), Laura Henry Allain (Jojo and Gran Gran), Ian Eagleton (Glitter Boy) , Lisa Thompson (Goldfish Boy), and Jamie Littler (Frostheart). There will be ‘Draw a Dragon’ workshops, memorable storytelling in a yurt, drop-in arts activities, monster hunts and much, much more…

More details of our 2023 programme coming soon!
