Family Program

Scribblers Festival Family Program
8-9 May 2021

We are so excited to share with you our 2021 Family Weekend Program! Join 26 children’s book authors, illustrators, and all around creatives from across Australia at our new home, the Subiaco Arts Centre, on 8-9 May for a weekend packed with story battles, LEGO Masters, Book Doctors, Teen Podcasters, and more hands-on creativity than your hands can handle!

This year due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have to do things a little bit differently (besides just sanitising those hands). The main sessions and activities throughout our Family Weekend remain FREE, but booking is now required for sessions at our indoor venues within Subiaco Arts Centre – the Main Auditorium and The Studio. As per usual, our Creative Workshops are ticketed and $20 each with limited space. You can download our entire program here, and view the interactive version below, clicking "BOOK NOW" to reserve your place. Questions about how to book? Visit our Booking Information Page.

Don't forget that we have heaps of free walk-in sessions that don’t require booking, so don’t hesitate to swing by and see how your Scribblers adventure unfolds!
