Cuckfield Bookfest 2018
Children and Young Adults’ Programme
Saturday 6th October will be a fun-filled day at the Baptist Church in Cuckfield. This year the Bookfest events for children and young adults are being held here, where there are exceptional spaces to make the most of the fantastic range of activities planned.
There’s a distinctly community feel about the day, with several local authors contributing and providing varied and exciting sessions. What is it about Cuckfield that produces such creativity?
We are also very delighted that three people who are particularly well known for their writing targeting three different age groups have accepted our invitation to take part in a presentation which will be unmissable for anyone involved in choosing books for young people.
Two of the sessions involve competitions – one for a poster about the importance of bees based on Tony De Saulles’ series, Bee Boy, and the other is a writing competition connected to Joshua Raven’s 5Fingers session. Flyers with all information about how to enter both competitions have been distributed locally since June.
With grateful thanks to the sponsors of the Children and Young Adults’ Programme: Central and Mid Sussex Council for Community Funding and Cumnor House Sussex.
