For Kids: Get Creative on Saturday
One of the things we love to do at Greenwich Book Festival is to create, so we’ve got lots of exciting events that allow children to do just that with some fantastic authors on Saturday, June 16.
Ged Adamson, our very own Illustrator in Residence during the festival, will be helping children to make a rainbow of their own after reading from his new book, “Ava and the Rainbow (Who Stayed)” at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. (Ages 4-7) To book tickets: bit.ly/gbfrainbow
Award-winning comics maestro Neill Cameron makes a hugely welcome return to our festival following his 2017 sell-out comic workshop. You can make your own (awesome) comics too when you join him at 2 p.m. on Saturday. (Ages 7+) To book tickets: bit.ly/gbfcomics18
Unicorn fans should set aside some time on Saturday as that will be the day that Fabi Santiago will be reading from her new book, “I Really Want That Unicorn”, and followed by unicorn making, colouring and mazes. All the fun begins at 1 p.m. on Saturday. (Ages 3-7) To book tickets: bit.ly/gbfunicorn
Children will be able to make dragon puppets with Robert Starling, author of “Fergal is Fuming.” You’ll also hear the story of Fergal, the dragon who keeps blowing his top when his friends take issue with his anger. The action kicks off at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. (Ages 3-6) To book tickets: bit.ly/gbffergal
