Our Mission: To give children and families from all cultures, backgrounds and abilities an equal opportunity of having access to books and attending a FREE literature festival.

“Reading is education, feeding our imagination in the most pleasurable way.”

Christina Gabbitas


 There are currently over 350 literature festivals in the UK, with less than 10% solely dedicated to children. We would like more emphasis on encouraging children to enjoy books, with an increased number of dedicated children’s festivals.

We would like to promote literature/reading festivals with a children’s element in the UK. If you know of any dedicated festivals, large or small, please let us know by completing the form on the contact page.

We want to be inclusive and not exclusive. It is our aim to organise and take literature festivals into towns and areas that don’t currently have representation.

We look forward to promoting more children’s events throughout the UK and Ireland.
