7th December 4:00pm to 8th December 3:59pm

Location: All Saints Church

This Christmas, Kingston upon Thames launches the Kingston Children’s Literary Festival and invites children and parents alike to listen to some of their favourite festive and non-festive tales from a line up some of the UK’s best-loved children’s authors in the lead-up to Christmas.

Join Tom McLaughlin for a 30 minute reading from his book, The Accidental Father Christmas.

The latest hilarious caper from author Tom McLaughlin. Funny by name. Funny by nature. Ben has one important thing on his Christmas list, and it's the same thing every year. He wants his dad to be at home for Christmas. But his wish never comes true. And Ben's starting to get a bit sceptical about Father Christmas's existence, he needs proof. So, on Christmas Eve, he sets up an elaborate booby trap to capture the jolly bearded fella as he comes sliding down the chimney. Kicking off a sequence of hilarious events that makes this Christmas the most bonkers ever!

> Reserve your place


Recommended for ages 7 and up, this event is completely free of charge. The reading will be held in All Saints Church Kingston. Please note children may be seated on the floor, some soft cushions will be provided.

All Saints in Kingston is the focal point of the town.  Since the 9th century, there has been a church on this site, when it was originally part of the Saxon royal estate.
