Celebrate the magic of storytelling
3-9 MaY 2021
Scribblers Festival is an annual festival of literature and arts for young people. We believe in the power of books and creativity as tools to help kids and teens better understand the world they live in and the worlds within them. That’s why, each May, we bring together a cast of authors, illustrators and other creative minds to tell their tales and reveal what goes in to making them. Become a Scribbler and keep reading to see what's happening at Scribblers HQ!
