Taking place at venues across the city centre.
After celebrating Dahl’s splendiferous City of the Unexpected, Cardiff is looking forward to more book-tastic fun. Celebrating its fifth fabulous year in 2017, Cardiff Children’s Literature Festival will be bigger and better than ever! Spread over two weekends, with events in both English and Welsh, the festival celebrates the very best in contemporary children’s books.
Authors and illustrators will be making their words and pictures come to life in iconic venues across the city, with amazing tales and performances featuring a cast of wonderful characters it’s ideal for all those who love children’s books.
We’re already looking forward to welcoming Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner Andy Stanton, festival favourite David Solomons, Hugless Douglas creator David Melling, picture book author and illustrators Chris Haughton, Rob Biddulph, BBC’s Mike Dilger, Clara Vulliamy and celebrated local author Jenny Nimmo to name but a few.
