A brand new literary festival for children, young people and families is taking place in Cirencester in August – can you promote the news?

Opening on Monday 12th August there will be two events each day to Saturday 17th August with award winning authors. The events are being held in Cirencester’s Bingham Library and Octavia’s Bookshop in Black Jack Street and are being run in conjunction with Gloucestershire Library Service and the Bingham Library Trust.

The festival is being opened by Alex T Smith, author of the much loved Claude books. A talented illustrator, Alex will be demonstrating his art and giving a talk to the children. And, of course, signing copies of his books!

Throughout the week, there are events suiting all age groups with some big names in children’s and teen literature in attendance including Damian Dibben, Frances Hardinge and Andrew Lane, author of the Young Sherlock Holmes series. Local authors include Wendy Meddour and her 11 year old illustrator daughter, Mina May, and Hannah Shaw.

Tickets for each event are just £1 and can be purchased in person from Octavia’s Bookshop, Cirencester.

The Bingham Library Trust is sponsoring the event as part of its commemorative celebrations 100 years following the death of its benefactor Daniel George Bingham. The £1 cover charge for the events will be donated to the Bingham Library Trust to support its good work in the local Community.
