Fun for all the Family

The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival offers a whole host of free family activities and paid for events to keep children of all ages entertained. Our Family Programmer has brought together a world-class line up to thrill young book lovers. Putting fun first, the festival gives children and young people a chance to meet the creators of their literary heroes, see illustrations come to life and fuel their imaginations.

We have added age suitability to our events to help you decide whether they would be appropriate for the members of your family. Running times and breaks are all age appropriate. See all of our family events.

We also offer a range of spaces and places buzzing with FREE family activities and pop-up events – perfect for a family day out! The activities are planned to be accessible to as wide an age range as possible: so they can be enjoyed and appreciated by all members of your family.
