Once again we have a bumper programme of events for children and families at this year’s festival.
The annual Literature Unlocked: Family Fun Days returns to Bradford’s City Park, with performances, craft workshops and children’s film screenings, all of which are free for everyone to attend.
We have interactive storytime sessions with Belinda McKenna-Bicknell, Flick Goodman and Jem Packer, alongside crafting sessions, comic salvage workshops and a chance to discover more about the science of superheroes.
Poet and broadcaster Lemn Sissay and illustrator Greg Stobbs invite you into a world of talking animals and formidable foes from their children’s book, Don’t Ask the Dragon, and for young fans of myths, mummies and monsters, author Louie Stowell will be talking about her new book featuring eleven-year-old mischievous shape-shifter Loki. And with everything from tales about witches to baby raves, there is plenty for children of all ages.
