Totnes Children’s Book Festival 2016

This year’s festival will take place over a full weekend – 15th and 16th October and once again is being held at the Royal Seven Stars Hotel in Totnes.

Valeport support the Totnes Children’s Book Festival 2016The organisers are delighted that for this year's festival two of the UK’s leading authors and illustrators will be taking part – Nick Sharratt, who has family connections with Totnes, and Dartmoor-based Philip Reeve.

There are 11 events, featuring 15 authors and illustrators.  The range of books is broader in this the second running of Turn the Page.

It's hoped that it will appeal to a wider group of children and their families, from pre-schoolers up to 10 and 11 year olds.

There will have picture books, funny books, non-fiction, poetry, illustrated books for older children, and two rising stars who write for 9–11 year olds.

Turn the Page came about when local children’s author Peter Bently and Nikki Marsh, who worked at the national literature charity Booktrust for 10 years, discovered they had both thought it would be good to have a children’s book day in Totnes. So in 2015 they organised it and enlisted support from local poet Matt Harvey.

Valeport are proud to be one of the sponsors for this years event.

Tickets on sale online, at the Royal Seven Stars Hotel and the Totnes Bookshop and at the Royal Seven Stars on the day.
