Visitors could try their hands at Gromit model-making workshops, getting their hands dirty to turn modelling clay into the famous film character.
The Square in Shrewsbury became a hive of literary fun, with a host of events as part of the town’s Bookfest.
As well as the Gromit workshops, there was also dancing, reading and singing as well as poetry readings in the museum and art gallery.
Two award-winning writers, Katherine Rundell and Emma Carroll, appeared at The Maidment Auditorium, Shrewsbury School.
And The Tiger Who Came to Tea was brought to life at the Button & Bear Bookshop on Castle Street, Shrewsbury.
The festival had a star-studded line-up, with national favourite and TV presenter Claire Balding entertaining an audience at Prestfelde School on Friday reading her new book The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop. Horrible Histories illustrator Martin Brown took to the stage at the Ashton Theatre at Shrewsbury School.
And former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen was at the Priory School.
The festival of literary themed events at venues takes place across Shrewsbury and has, since its inception in 1999, become a hugely respected and popular event in the county.
Regularly reaching audiences in their thousands each year the four-day festival attracts the most popular and highly-respected people in children’s literature.
