HAYDAYS for families and children

Taking readers into the world of stories, and lighting the spark of what it takes to create them, is at the heart of HAYDAYS. Appearing digitally this year will be authors and performers telling stories and engaging audiences in all sorts of inventive ways.

From young children to teenagers and students, we programme events to help learn, be inspired and discover. The 2021 Festival programme will be announced soon – watch this space!
