Kids Day description
Be part of a magical day of stories, performances and hands-on fun as authors, actors and adventurers take over Kids Corner to entertain and inspire our youngest readers.
The Story Tent
The Story Hub of Kids’ Day features an All Star line-up of Phil Cummings, Jacqueline Harvey, Tamsin Janu, Andy Joyner, Anna Walker and It’s Rhyme Time.
Don’t miss Story Trove’s inventive world of story-telling through live performance and creative play.
Tamsin Janu is supported by the Prime Minister’s Literary Award.
Nest Studio helps little artists express themselves in many ways! Create a forest out of cardboard boxes, publish a story about a lost hen, print some original lines
of poetry….or join in the fun by making an official Writers’ Week bookmark to keep or distribute to our audience.
Evelyn Roth’s Nylon Zoo
It’s time for a parade! Evelyn is bringing an echidna to the Gardens so get ready to don a costume, be part of the parade of animals, before climbing into the belly of
the echidna for a story.
