National Children’s Literary Festival

The National Children’s Literary Festival at Listowel Writers’ Week runs alongside Listowel Writers’ Week from May 27th – 31st 2020. Now in its 9th year, the Festival has lots of events on offer for children and families including treasure hunts, writing workshops, quizzes, face-painting, pantomimes, street performers, as well as readings from some of the luminaries of children’s literature. Over the past nine yers we’ve been joined by lots of wonderful people including Niall Breslin, Philip Ardagh, Philip Reeve, Sarah McIntyre, Dave Rudden and Sarah Webb.

It is a fantastic family occasion, with events full of wonder, imagination and the written word. It’s a real treat!

The full festival programme will be announced in Spring 2020.
