Welcome.   2014 is proving to be yet another successful year for the organisation whose ethos is to enthuse, entertain and inspire children through literature and the arts:

 

January 2014 Shrewsbury Children's

Bookfest delivered a Book Award project

involving over 1000 pupils from 32 primary

schools across Shropshire.  Films and

reviews of the project can be seen here.

 

The sun shone and the crowds flocked to

the annual May Festival packed with a

huge variety of literary themed events for

children from riddles to poetry; to creating

picture books and escaping from beasts

and discovering magical kingdoms.  

Pictures, reviews and fun stuff from the

festival weekend can be seen here.

 

November will see the organisation deliver

a series of events, Bookfest Remembers,

to commemorate the anniversary of World

War One.  Full programme details can be

found here.
