Adelaide Writers' Week

Kids’ Weekend returns with two big days of stories, games, painting, printing, parades and performances. Join us for some full-on fun!

Evelyn Roth’s Nylon Zoo

Evelyn Roth’s magical Nylon Zoo returns with her animal costumes, parades and a storyteller inside her custom made creature. This year we will host a big blue Beluga whale and a mighty salmon for journeys into the deep.

Nest Studio

Imaginative, educational and lots of fun, Nest Studio is back with an exciting program of printing, publishing and creation. This year we’ll again run letterpresses and make picture books, while our Little Artists will work some watercolour magic. New this year is bookmark making, where we invite kids to create the official Adelaide Writers’ Week bookmark.

Story Tent

Our great red yurt returns for two days of stories, drawings and performances. New this year is Story Trove, who will be performing iconic children’s stories in foley. Joining them are the wonderful Andy Griffiths, Andrew Joyner, Ted Prior and a little mouse called Maisy.
