Time: -Tue 31 Oct 2017 | Venue:

Celebrate Children’s Book Week Monday 13 – Friday 17 November 2017 with Bradford Libraries, at our Enid Blyton Workshops to mark the 75th Anniversary of the publication of “The Famous Five”.

Bradford Libraries are delighted that we can offer schools five events for Children’s Book Week (13th – 17th November 2017).

We have a wonderful exhibition courtesy of the Royal Horticultural Society and Seven Stories Museum looking at the “Life and Stories of Enid Blyton”, which will be central to our Enid Blyton Workshops. The children will have the opportunity to meet Enid Blyton (actress & storyteller Irene Lofthouse) and hear about her life and writing, as she chats while sitting on her picnic rug. She will read extracts from the Famous Five and other titles before the children are given time to think about their own adventure story and to do the Enid Blyton trail around the exhibition. Every child will receive a special anniversary Famous Five book along with a copy to take back for every child in your school.

Our Enid Blyton Workshops are all at City Library on Monday 13th November 9.30am – 11am & 1.15pm – 2.45pm; Tuesday 14th November 9.30am – 11am & 1.15pm – 2.45pm, and Thursday 16th November 1.15pm – 2.45pm (Suitable for Y3, Y4 or Y5). All sessions are free of charge. We have places for 60 children for each session from two schools. We will offer one place (30 children max) per school.

Your school will be sent a letter of confirmation via email if you have been successful in securing a place.
