Great opportunities to see authors/illustrators in Oxford, Ipswich, Bristol and Bexhill on Sea


The Children’s Bookshow is an annual tour of children’s authors and illustrators from the UK and abroad. Visiting local theatre venues across England, the Bookshow gives teachers and school children the opportunity to hear world-class artists talk about their work.

There are still tickets available to see

  • Patrick Benson, September 245th 2013, Bexhill on Sea
  • Rachel Rooney, October 18th 2013, Bristol
  • Jessica Souhami, November 7th 2013, Ipswich
  • Fabio Geda in conversation with children’s books editor of The Sunday Times, Nicolette Jones, November 15th 2013, Oxford

  • If a school books tickets for one of these events, that school is then eligible for one of the FREE school workshops. In other words the author/illustrator in question will visit your school at no cost to you, doubling the opportunity for pupils to hear world-class artists talk about their work.
