Our first Children’s Book Festival was been voted a great success by those who came along to support us. Lavenham was full of the sounds of children and their families enjoying themselves!
A total audience of around 500 came to the 16 sessions, which included ‘meet the author’ events; entertainment for pre-school children; and various workshops relating to writing, drawing and illustrating in the world of books.
After the event, one Mum wrote saying ‘I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had this afternoon. The workshop that we attended was great fun and all the children seemed to be enjoying themselves. I want to commend you on a wonderfully organised event and the fantastic array of authors and illustrators…such a fine choice of great activities’.
Many, many thanks to all who came, to our wonderful volunteers and, of course, the authors and illustrators for their excellent contributions.
