Kicking off during half term school holidays in Westfield Stratford, London, on 27th October and later appearing in Cardiff, Manchester and Edinburgh, Save the Children will be inviting families across the UK to free events celebrating all that is magical about reading. A wide range of special guests including the Gruffalo and Winnie the Witch will be popping along to meet young fans.

Save the Children’s free series of children’s events are part of a wider reading mission called ‘Read On. Get On.’ which aims to get all children across the UK reading confidently by the time they leave primary school.

The events will offer lots of fun activities for families with some of the nation’s most famous faces, authors, illustrators and fictional characters hosting ‘Storytelling Sessions’, ‘Poetry with a Bang!’ – the very best in playful spoken word poetry created on the hoof by some of our famous faces and ‘Word Searching’ – a treasure hunt experience where clues and riddles will mean prizes for all children.

Interactive workshops for children of all ages will also be freely available throughout the day including ‘Page Turners’ where a storyteller and illustrator will build a story with the help of the audience’s imagination and ‘Have a Go’ craft sessions. During Face-painting sessions kids can choose to be transformed into one of their favourite characters such as Fantastic Mr Fox or the Gruffalo.
