What we do



The aim of Shrewsbury Bookfest is to bring the world of books alive for children and to inspire and enthuse them with a love of reading.  


Through a series of annual projects with schools and families, Shrewsbury Bookfest is the only organisation of its kind working with school age children in Shropshire.
