Linton Children’s Book Festival – books, kids and fun, since 2006!
Every two years, since 2006, we have been inspiring young readers from the village of Linton and surrounding communities in South Cambridgeshire. Our festival is packed with FREE fun activities for children aged 2-12: creative workshops, storytelling, presentations by favourite authors, poets and illustrators, hands-on arts and crafts, music…and so much more!
We are now getting ready for our 6th event. The main festival weekend is 21-22 May 2016 at Linton Village College, with lots of additional activities in the run-up week.
Linton Children’s Book Festival is a registered charity run by volunteers dedicated to promoting children’s literacy, creativity and love of books. All our events are free of charge – we are entirely funded by grants, sponsorship and donations. Our festival is a highly anticipated and much loved event. It attracts around 1,000 visitors each day of the main weekend at Linton Village College.
We work with Linton’s four schools (Infants, Juniors, Village College and Special School), holding in-school author talks and fun competitions during the week leading up to the festival weekend.
We love involving our whole village in the festival. This year we’ll hold a round-the-village scavenger hunt, library and after-school story-times, Book Crossing and other fun activities around Linton.
Please look at the photos on our Flickr page to see what a great time we have! We hope you will come and join us in May 2016.
