Watch events in The Den

Join Tom Gates author and illustrator Liz Pichon in a BRAND NEW adventure. Liz will be reading from her new book SHOE WARS, answering questions and introducing a whole host of new characters including Wendy Wedge, the baddy from Shoe Town, who is desperate to WIN the Golden Shoe Award. We’ll be drawing SHOES with the most incredible GADGETS and the wearing of fancy footwear is definitely encouraged. You will be doodling and drawing too so have a pen and paper ready to join in. Best foot forward! #ShowMeYourShoes!
