It’s back to school and time to start planning things to look forward to for the family this autumn.

Bath Children’s Literature Festival is packed with loads of fun and interactive events for all ages. The ten-day festival opens on Friday 23 September and runs through until Sunday 2 October.

In addition to ticketed events there are lots of FREE activities too. Drop in to The Egg Theatre over weekend of 24/25 September to visit the Happiness Hub. There you’ll be encouraged to draw, write and read your way to happiness through a series of hands-on activities. There’s even a special Happiness ice cream, created for the festival!

Or pick up a free Character Trail sheet while you’re in Bath city centre and find the popular children’s characters lurking in shops and public buildings to be in with the chance of winning a bundle of books.

Big names coming to the festival this autumn include Michael Rosen, David Baddiel, Jacqueline Wilson, Liz Pichon, Rob Biddulph, Dermot O’Leary, Richard Ayoade and Alice Oseman, creator of the Heartstopper series.

There are lively story telling sessions for toddlers, draw-along sessions for all the family, workshops and events for older readers, including the chance to meet environment activists Amy and Ella Meek, authors of Be Climate Clever.
