Bath Children's Literature Festival Tickets

Bath Children’s Literature Festival was established in 2007 by Bath-based children’s publishing professionals Gill and John McLay.

This is the largest dedicated children’s book festival in Europe, and presents over 80 public, ticketed events and an extensive programme of events in schools.

In 2016 the Festival celebrates its 10th birthday and welcomes amongst the line-up are David Walliams, Liz Pichon, astronaut Chris Hadfield, and Chris Riddell.

The Festival regularly attracts some of the biggest children’s authors and illustrators from the UK and internationally. Past contributors have included: Jacqueline Wilson, Cressida Cowell, Martin Rosen, Judith Kerr, Michael Morpurgo, Anthony Horowitz, Lauren Child, Shirley Hughes, Julia Donaldson, Michael Rosen, Terry Deary, Cornelia Funke, Eoin Colfer, Darren Shan, Neil Gaiman, Anthony Browne and Francesca Simon.

The ethos of the festival is simple: to entertain children, and to enthuse them about reading. With the aim to create a friendly, family atmosphere in which young book fans can come along to Festival events and meet their favourite authors and book characters.
