Book It!

A warm welcome to this year’s Book It! – the Festival within a Festival.

The 2013 programme features a fantastic array of over a hundred events for all the family designed to stimulate, inspire and celebrate storytelling in all its forms, from meeting favourite characters to prize-winning authors, from creative writing and drawing workshops to panel discussions and non-fiction events with plenty of fun in between.

Many of our well-loved authors and illustrators will be appearing at the Festival this year; Julia Donaldson, Lauren Child, Tony Ross, Nick Sharratt, Shirley Hughes and her daughter Clara Vulliamy, Patrick Ness, Meg Rosoff and from the US, Neil Gaiman to name just a few. Come and join the fun.
