Cardiff Children’s Literature Festival will return in 2017 with more authors, poets, illustrators & television stars to inspire book lovers of all ages.
Feedback from the 2016 festival
Author Jacqueline Wilson
I am thrilled to bits with the festival. It is beautifully organised and everyone is so warm and enthusiastic. What author wouldn’t want a sell-out event at a great festival like this? It gets huge, big ticks from me.
Loving Cardiff Children’s Literature Festival all events are £4 or free to keep the festival accessible to all!
