We passionately believe that creativity should be at the heart of every child’s education and are committed to ensuring that as many children and young people as possible, from across Greater Manchester and beyond, can take part in the Manchester Children's Book Festival.
We are currently testing pilots and models with a cluster of schools in the Longsight/Manchester area with a view to rolling these projects out across out schools network from 2019.
We are often approached by publishers offering author visits to schools. When these ad-hoc opportunities are available, we advertise them via our Twitter and Facebook pages and also email teachers on our mailing list.
If you would like to receive information about when different authors and workshops are available to come into your school, please sign up for the MCBF mailing list and tick to indicate that you are a teacher. You can also follow us on Twitter @MCBFestival or like us on Facebook.
