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’ve welcomed many fabulous authors and events at Stroud Book Festival over the years: Julia Donaldson, Sophie Dahl, Nell Gifford, Michael Morpurgo, Lydia Monks, Onjali Q Raúf, Andy Seed and Aardman Animations, to name just a few!

We’ve had storytelling events and workshops for poets and crafters and makers. We are so lucky in Stroud to have so many wonderful local authors who’ve performed at Stroud Book Festival too: John Dougherty, Tracey Corderoy, Tom Percival, Hannah Shaw.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2022!

With best wishes, Jane x
