Bath Children’s Literature Festival 2018 – Europe’s largest dedicated children’s literature festival takes place Friday 28 September – Sunday 7 October.

The Bath Children’s Literature Festival, the largest dedicated children’s literature festival in Europe, always offers a vibrant array of talks and activities for children with a dedicated young adult (YA) programme, and this year is no exception.

Our artistic directors, John and Gill McLay, have secured a world-class line up to thrill young book lovers. Putting fun and laughter first, the festival is a chance for children and young people to meet the creators of their literary heroes, see illustrations come to life and fuel their imaginations.
