Lavenham Children’s Book Festival

Lavenham Children’s Book Festival is proudly sponsored by Mattioli Woods and has gone virtual!

No matter your location in the world, access to exclusive author interviews and much more is now available to you and completely free! The site is full of engaging content to keep the children in your life occupied, educated and having fun over the summer holidays and beyond.

Listen to Michael Morpurgo, the author of War Horse, share anecdotes from his work when interviewed by fellow author Clare Mulley.

Zeb Soanes indulges us with tales of Gaspard the Fox, while James Mayhew provides a video guide to drawing our furry friend, accompanied by music from Chris Warner.

Dragons are the specialist subject of author Rob Starling who returns to the festival with Fergal the Much-Loved Dragon. Rob gives us a step-by-step guide on how to draw Fergal!

Anne-Marie Howell tells stories about Bury St Edmunds – her book, The Garden of Lost Secrets is set in a real walled garden within the grand country estate of Ickworth Park in Suffolk.

Shoo Rayner, author of Walker, The Boy Who Can Talk to Dogs shows us how to draw a famous building, historical people and more.

Who Loves Dinosaurs? Charlotte Sebag-Montefiore is turning readers into palaeontologists with quizzes and riddles.

Visit to find a creative content for all ages with readings, how-to-draw videos, quizzes and much more.

Help us spread the word and verse of Lavenham Literacy Festival by sharing our article on your own social media and of course share with the children in your life.
