Reading is Magic Festival

The festival is back between 2nd October and 6th October 2023...

Reading is Magic Festival is returning in October and you don’t want to miss it!

Lots of writers, illustrators and poets who you might recognise are taking part – and you can get involved.

The events will be beamed straight into schools and homes across the globe.

See the events here!

Award-winning children’s author and creator of How to Train Your Dragon and The Wizards of Once series, Cressida Cowell, has a big role in the festival. In fact, the name comes from her key message of ‘reading is magic, and magic is for everyone‘.

Some important points to remember are:

  • Be creative for at least 15 minutes a week
  • Have a planet to read on
  • See yourself reflected in a book
  • Have some choice in what you read
  • Read for the joy of it

2023’s programme includes Joseph Coelho, Harry Woodgate, David Almond, Benjamin Zephaniah, Cressida Cowell and more!

Make sure to watch on Monday 2nd October – Friday 6th October 2023.
