read-a-licious, Tue 19 – Fri 22 November 2019

The Eastgate’s annual children’s book festival returns with an inspiring four days of workshops and activities dedicated to encouraging children and young people (from 18 months to 14 years) to read, use their imagination and engage creatively with literature.


The line up of authors for 2019 is Emily Dodd, Mike Nicolson, Lea Taylor and (travelling from Gloucestershire) Andy Seed. Each of these authors and storytellers interact with pupils as they talk about their work, answer questions and, of course, sign and dedicate books.
