The Loogabarooga Festival returns to LoughboroughI

This year’s programme will include free creative drop-in workshops, storytelling sessions, advice on how to write and illustrate your own book, with appearances from some of the nation’s favourite children’s authors and illustrators including Harry Potter illustrator, Jim Kay, Alastair Watson presenting The Dinosaur That Pooped by members of supergroup, McBusted, and a Clangers workshop to coincide with a new CBeebies series.

The unique, hand-painted Book Benches will also return. Last year they featured the cover artwork of some of the nation’s favourite Ladybird children’s stories including Shopping with Mother, Cinderella and Bunnikins Picnic Party, and were located throughout the town. This year, a new competition will be launched for the public to nominate their favourite Ladybird book with the most popular title forming the artwork for a new Book Bench.
