“Reading is education, feeding our imagination in the most pleasurable way.”

ABOUT THE Literature FESTIVAL

Children’s Literature Festivals is the idea of children’s author, poet and voice artist Christina Gabbitas who is Event Director for the festival. There are over 350 literature festivals in the UK with less than 10% solely dedicated for children. There are some wonderful festivals but very few throughout England and not easily accessed for children and families from all backgrounds. We at Children’s Literature Festivals want to make festivals and books more accessible for all.

The first Selby Children’s Literature Festival was held in 2017 and was a huge success engaging over 3,500 children and families. We hope to introduce many more children’s literature festivals throughout England in the near future. If you would like to get involved, please email: info@christinagabbitas.com

Mission: To give children and families from all backgrounds, cultures and abilities and equal opportunity of having access to a literature festival
