BBE Festival 2014 Children's Programme

Start the summer with an adventure. Sail the seas with Captain Redhand, explore with the Fabulous Four Fish Fingers and solve a Mariella Mystery.

With a programme packed full of activities – competitions, workshops, illustration making, book stalls and our very own Storytelling Yurt, the Big Bookend Children’s Festival is the ideal place to launch a summer of exciting expeditions into worlds fired by imagination. Come with your family, bring a picnic, meet your favourite author and enjoy weighing anchor from safe port in Leeds city centre.

All this is included in a single children’s festival ticket (£3.00 per child, adults free, max of 2 or a weekend ticket, £5.00 per child), which covers all events that are part of the children’s festival.

The children’s programme is being hosted by Leeds Church Institute (opposite the Corn Exchange, above Out of this World). With all activities taking place under one roof, and a single ticket allowing access to all events, children can explore the festival safely, while parents join in or relax with their own book!
