Everything is progressing smoothly. It is wonderful to see so many people from different walks of life enthusiastically involved in a community event.
What are the highlights so far:
Miriam O’Callaghan will open the festival at 12.00 o’clock in the Lecture Hall at CCR.
In the hall there will be a book stall, a ‘mini theatre’ where there will be performances all afternoon, and there will be three workshops running concurrently in various rooms. The precise timings of what will be happening has still to be worked out!
Some of the performances will be readings by authors, some will be by the actors, and we are hoping to have entertainment for parents with their 3-5 year olds.
There will be a used book exchange where the proceeds will go to the Friends of St Luke’s. Check out on their page on this website what they do. We are delighted that, in addition to the community aspect, there is the opportunity at a Children’s Book Festival to support the valuable service of the Friends of St Luke’s to families where children are ill.
There will be food stalls provided by Bijou and Saba, and we are hoping for a good day so that these can be outside.
