Welcome to Bookniks, our Children’s Book Festival; an action-packed day for kids of all ages.

Every ounce of this all-day event is packed with incredible stories from an array of renowned authors; new versions of stories you love, histories you’ve never heard of and stories you make yourself.

Discover the secret history of chocolate whilst learning to make your own; be part of a Paddington Bear concert by making your own instruments; witness world record-breaking beatboxer SK Shlomo’s five-star sell-out show; learn yoga, brought to life with storytelling, music and mindfulness.

Meet authors, illustrators, puppeteers and poets; discover the connections between stories and refugees; stop by the PJ Library crafting session and ignite your imagination, or just drop into our Yoto listening lounge throughout the day.

A reading of Osnat and Her Dove will be available to watch for free to all Bookniks bookers! Look out for the link in your confirmation email.
