Hertford Children's Book Festival, 3-6 October
Now in its second year, the Hertford Children's Book Festival takes place next month and features an exciting line-up of events with well-known and award-winning authors coming to Hertford.
Appearing at Hertford Theatre are bestselling authors Lauren Child (Charlie and Lola, Clarice Bean) and Alex Scarrow (Time Riders) as well as actor, film producer, director and Hertfordshire local Simon Pegg, whose children's work includes voicing characters in Tintin, Phineas and Ferb and Room on the Broom.
Although the Theatre will be the hub of this year's Festival, a number of other venues – including Haileybury – are hosting schools' events.
Sarwat Chadda will be at Haileybury on the morning of Friday 4 October, discussing his adventures in writing. If you love Percy Jackson, Achilles and Thor, then you'll love his Ash Mistry books featuring a reluctant hero who's the reincarnation of the great Indian legend Ashoka.
To bring your class of Year 6, 7 or 8 pupils to this FREE event, please contact our Box Office on 01992 706355 or email: email@example.com
