This Christmas, Kingston upon Thames launches the Kingston Children’s Literary Festival and invites children and parents alike to listen to some of their favourite festive and non-festive tales from a line up some of the UK’s best-loved children’s authors in the lead-up to Christmas.
Join Jeremy Davies for a 30 minute reading from his book, The Advent Calendar.
On a desperately cold winters night over thirty years ago, Father Christmas mysteriously disappeared, leaving the residents of Willow Cove and the wider world without their magical winter holiday. A typically reckless sledging crash leads Jack and Ethan to the discovery of an enchanting book which has lain hidden for years. With the help of their elder sister they manage to break the secret code and through the magical text in the book, the children undertake a remarkable quest North.
Recommended for ages 7 and up, this event is completely free of charge. The reading will be held in Kingston Children’s Library.
Children must be accompanied at all times.
