Read Me, Write Me, Draw Me, Tell Me Children’s Literature Festival 2014


2013 was the very first year of running our ‘Children’s Literature Festival’ and it was a huge success! Everyone who came along had so much fun, that we are going to do it all over again. Having crammed a week full with so many exciting events and workshops last year, we are delighted to announce this year’s festival will run for two weeks!

We have so many events offering a wide variety of activities by some fantastic artists who specialise in presenting and exploring literature in exciting and creative ways; you will be sure to find something you will love.

Would you like to make sweets at Willy Wonka’s sweet factory? Or maybe create a mask for a super hero? You could travel round the world in 8 objects in the amazing ‘Karvan’ or go on an Explorers Expedition around your own imagination! Following the popularity of the Giant Comic Strip on Lougborough's Queens Park last year we have asked James Parsons to come back again and entertain us with his silly jokes and amazing cartoons? Don’t miss him this year!

Or maybe you would just like to learn the art of shadow puppets, or story telling; where you can help tell the story through performance. Or do you fancy acting? Or making your own puppet for a starring role in a show? There are also workshops that will teach you the East Asian art of paper cutting, song writing or even how to create your own graphic novel!

This exciting multi-artform event has activities for children and young people from the ages of 3–16 as well as family events. The festival is now entering its second year and we hope the success helps us to see it grow year on year.

Details of all the events during the festival can be found on our ticket booking site at and in the 'Heart Of 3 Cities' publication, downloadable now from

The Festival runs from Monday 21th July to Sunday 3rd August 2014 at venues across Loughborough Town Centre.
