This year’s festival takes place from Monday 7 – Saturday 19 November, with our two week schools programme taking place in schools and libraries across the region.
We’re very excited that our free family Gala Day on Saturday 19 November will be in Middlesbrough, in Central Library and next door in mima. We’ve got a great programme including Vivian French, Barry Hutchison, Dan Smith, Gabrielle Kent, The Two Steves, Tracey Corderoy. Philip Ardagh and lots more, as well as art workshops, storytelling and some great digital activities. More details will be released in September.
