Full details of the Children and Young People events as part of the Ilkley Literature Festival:

Children's Festival

We have a packed programme of events for children and families including Julian Clary and acclaimed illustrator David Roberts discussing their first book together, The Bolds, a hillarious tale of an ordinary family from Teddington who happen to be Hyenas.

Much loved author Cathy Cassidy returns to the Festival with her latest book, a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, plus Steve Cole, the best selling author of the Astrosaurs, Cows in Action and several Doctor Who books provides guaranteed fun for those aged 9 - 12.

There is also the Children's Festival day at All Saints School on Saturday 10 October which has something for everyone aged 3 - 12, including sessions with the authors of Ralfy Rabbit, Demolition Dad and Mariella Mystery, performances from tutti frutti, interactive storytelling from Mud Pie Arts and the chance to create comics or write poems.

Events for Young People

For Young People aged 12 -18 authors James Dawson, Sam Hepburn and Lisa Williamson discuss The Art of Being Normal and how Young Adult fiction can tackle difficult subjects. The author of the hugely popular Half-Bad series, Sally Green will be talking thillers and supernatual goings on.

Plus teenagers can join the Press Pack to write Festival reviews, Make a Newspaper in a Day and perform their own work at the Cool Voices Club Night. DJ Testament will be combining poetry and hip hop with a performance of Blake Remixed and budding writers can take part in a taster session with Ilkley Young Writers Group.
