Kingston Children's Literary Festival

This Christmas will see the launch of the first Kingston Children’s Literary Festival.

This festive season, children and parents alike are invited 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.

You will have the chance to meet the likes of comedian and picture book sensation, Olaf Falafel, illustrator and animator, Tom McLaughlin author Katherine Woodfine, blogger and fantasy writer, A. Bello and the award-winning Pete Johnson, author of over fifty books.

Kingston Children’s Literary Festival has been designed to appeal to children of all ages and launches on Saturday 18 November 2017. All readings are completely free but need to be pre-booked in advance as spaces are limited.
