The Foundation are delighted to have supported this year’s Sutton Coldfield Bookfest!

The festival provides a fantastic chance for children to meet their favourite authors, discover astonishing books and experience hands-on storytelling.

Events for 0-12 year olds will take place at Sutton Coldfield Library and Sutton Coldfield Town Hall, with a fun, free Where’s Wally book trail taking place between the two venues. There will be a book shop and opportunities to have books signed by their authors. So if you know a young book worm – or someone who’s ready to be inspired – then don’t miss out!

Tickets start at just £3.50 and go on sale on Monday 6th January here

Sutton Coldfield BookFest is produced by Bournville BookFest and FOLIO Sutton Coldfield.

Festival director Sarah Mullen said:

“We are very proud to be bringing Sutton Coldfield BookFest back in 2020 and really have something for everyone, from famous authors to storytelling for tots. Join us for a Leap Day to remember – a chance to #LeapintoBooks!”

Zoe Toft, Chair of FOLIO Sutton Coldfield, said:

“We are so excited to see the return of Sutton Coldfield Bookfest in 2020! And this time it’s going to be even bigger and better, with Jacqueline Wilson, a former Children’s Laureate, joining us to help celebrate. Coming just before World Book Day (5 March), and Sutton Coldfield Library’s birthday (7 March) there’s never been a better time to get families excited about sharing stories together.”

Tina Costello, Foundation CEO, said:

“We’re delighted to have been able to support the Sutton Coldfield BookFest in 2020. It’ll be a fantastic opportunity for young people to have fun, increase their appetite for reading and learn new skills. We’re sure it’ll be a fantastic and positive day!”
