About us

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.

Since 2006, we have been inspiring young readers from the village of Linton and surrounding communities in South Cambridgeshire. Our biennial 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 work closely with Linton’s four schools (Infants, Juniors, Village College and the Granta Special School), holding in-school author talks in the run-up. And in the week before the festival, look out for garden storytimes taking place in local residents’ gardens!

This year our main weekend will be on the 13th-14th May 2023. If you would like to come along, sign up to our mailing list at the bottom of this page. We will email you as soon as the booking system has been enabled on this website, as well as all the latest news.
