Bath Children’s Literature Festival 2019 – Europe’s largest dedicated children’s literature festival is returning on Friday 27 September – Sunday 6 October with a vibrant array of talks and activities for children.

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

Check out our competitions and fantastically fun things to do over the summer here
