Radio Times Festival @ Hampton Court Palace, London

Fun for all the family at the Radio Times Festival!


The first Radio Times Festival, celebrating the very best in television, radio and books, is packed full of family-friendly fun sessions including Shaun the Sheep, David Walliams, Doctor Who and Thomas the Tank Engine.

Multi-talented comedian, actor and best-selling children’s author David Walliams will be celebrating his hugely popular children’s books; The Gruffalo and Stickman author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler host an amazing hour of storytelling, illustrations and sing-alongs.

For those craving something a bit more hands-on, there will be workshops to create your very own Shaun the Sheep or Morph in Aardman Animation’s model-making classes, and Little Princess creator and Horrid Henry illustrator Tony Ross will be sharing the tricks of his trade in his drawing masterclass.
