Mountains to Sea Festival Closes This Sunday
It all starts off at 10.30am in the County Hall with Gillian Perdue and The Great pet Shop Escape; a lively workshop of story, drama and dance. At 11 there's a brilliant Animation Workshop by Cartoon Saloon. At 11.30, Oliver Jeffers is Stuck on Books. At 12:30, the Cartoon Saloon is back with part two of the Animation Workshop. 1pm is the time to meet the Queen of Teen, Cathy Cassidy. (Her new installment of the Chocolate Box Girls series 'Marshmallow Skye' is out now and going fast!) At 2pm it's time for Animal Madness with Mavis & Marge, and their exceptional creator, Niamh Sharkey. I hope you've all been preparing in advance for the Mountains to sea Monster Family Book Quiz at 2:30..... And, finally, to wrap up the day (and the children's/family events of this years' festival) it's Derek Landy and Mr. Skulduggery himself Kicking Evil Very Hard In The Face!
So... if you're at lose ends on Sunday, here's the link to the great family/children's events (all curated by author/reviewer/children's books expert and all-round wonderful and lovely Sarah Webb) for the final day. You won't regret a minute of it!
