Jane Churchill, 2020

Hello Everyone,

I’m Jane Churchill, the Children’s Director at Stroud Book Festival.

Every year, I have the wonderful job of programming Children’s Events at Stroud Book Festival, as well as our annual Schools’ Day.

We can't wait to present our fantastic line-up for children and families for our 2021 Festival!

Headlined by much-loved author and former Children's Laureate Sir Michael Morpurgo and WHAT THE LADYBIRD HEARD illustrator Lydia Monks. We welcome back Festival favourite Andy Seed.  We have songs, rhymes and storytelling for pre-schoolers, crafting and making workshops for older children, as well as our 4th annual Schools' Day for primary schools in Gloucestershire. Something for every age and stage!

Our events will go on sale this summer - see our fabulous line-up so far here.

With best wishes, Jane x
