In a new departure for the Festival, we are cancelling the Village Hall events for 10 October and instead we are excited to be launching the Lavenham Children’s Book Festival online.  Our brilliant authors will be providing us with special videos, stories, illustrations and other wonderful content and we will be posting these here.

We will continue to update people via our mailing list which is easy to join.  Or to get in touch, click here.

We are sad not to be welcoming you all in person this year but we will be back as soon as we know that it is safe for us all to gather together again. 

We are busy organizing the new online presence and will be adding to this website information on the special content  that will be on offer.  We are very pleased to be able to tell you that we will certainly  be joined by our old friends, author Zeb Soanes and illustrator  James Mayhew, together with musician Chris Warner,  with  much-loved Gaspard The Fox.


We are equally pleased that renowned local author Ann-Marie Howell has also agreed to be present. Her recent work explores the secrets of the gardens of Ickworth, which we know you will excited to explore with her.
