Ilkley Literature Festival pod to host silly stories at book event
9:00am Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
Books and stories will be the focus of a free day of children’s activities during half-term in Leeds.
The We Love Stories day will take place at the city museum, with a helping hand from Ilkley Literature Festival and The Grammar School at Leeds.
At the event tomorrow children will be able to enjoy storytelling and illustrating, crafts, face painting and competitions. They can also spin a silly story inside Chol Theatre’s inflatable pod which was one of the attractions at Ilkley Literature Festival.
Fresh from its 40th anniversary year, the festival is also bringing illustrator and author Stephen Waterhouse to the event to create illustrations with visitors.
Children can also take a peek into an imaginary world at the museum’s current exhibition Through the Magic Mirror. Stepping through the magic mirror youngsters will see the picture book world of author and illustrator Anthony Browne brought to life.
We Love Stories takes place at Leeds City Museum from 11am to 3pm.
Admission and activities are free.
