This festive season, children and parents alike are invited to listen to some of their favourite festive and non-festive tales from a line up of some of the UK’s best-loved children’s authors during November and December.

Families will have the chance to meet the likes of comedian and picture book sensation Olaf Falafel, illustrator and animator, Tom McLaughlin author Katherine Woodfine, blogger and fantasy writer, A. Bello and the award-winning Pete Johnson, author of over fifty books.
