Kids Day
09:30 to 15:30

Be part of a magical day of stories, performances and hands-on fun as authors, actors and adventurers take over Kids Day Corner to entertain and inspire our youngest readers.

The Story Tent

The Story Hub of Kids’ Day features an All Star line-up of Phil Cummings, Jacqueline Harvey, Tamsin Janu, Andy Joyner, Anna Walker and It’s Rhyme Time.
Don’t miss Story Trove’s inventive world of story-telling through live performance and creative play.
Tamsin Janu is supported by the Prime Minister’s Literary Award.

Nest Studio

Nest Studio helps little artists express themselves in many ways! Create a forest out of cardboard boxes, publish a story about a lost hen, print some original lines
of poetry….or join in the fun by making an official Writers’ Week bookmark to keep or distribute to our audience.
