The East Riding Festival of Words 2018 – the new look literature festival running from 18-21 October – has unveiled its exciting programme of children’s events.
Featuring a variety of authors, energetic storytelling, and a healthy dose of toilet humour, weekend events will take place in Bridlington, Goole, and Beverley.
The main event of the weekend will be the Horrible Science Show with Nick Arnold at the Parkway Cinema in Beverley on Saturday, 20 October from 11am – 12 noon. This wacky show brings the award winning ‘Horrible Science’ series to life, with demonstrations, readings from the books, and quizzes. It will be noisy and very funny and is recommended for ages 6-14. Seats cost £5 each.
Saturday, 20 October will also include these events:
The fun-packed programme continues on Sunday, 21 October with this line-up:
Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said : “This is a superb programme of children’s events, which will greatly add to the Festival of Words. I hope lots of families will join us to celebrate their children’s love of stories, and inspire their imaginations.”
In the week before the Festival, authors will also be hosting private performances for schools at East Riding libraries.
Tickets are available now via the Festival of Words website, or in person from the libraries which are hosting the events.
