Delivered in partnership with Belfast City Council, our Family Fun Day aims to introduce children to the fabulous world of books for all ages and abilities.
Each year we deliver a great day out that the whole family can enjoy! There are Arts & Craft activities, Face Painting, interactive storytelling, Renowned children’s authors readings, entertainment and a Book Fair!
Best of all, our Family Fun Day is FREE for all to attend!
During Belfast Book Festival 2019 a number of children’s authors will be visiting primary, secondary and grammar schools as part of our Writers In Schools programme. Writers In Schools is a hugely important part of our festival every year, in the hope of inspire and encourage a new generation to become the readers and writers of the future.
Throughout the year, The Crescent runs numerous creative writing courses and workshops. At the Belfast Book Festival we provide participants a platform to share and read their work in an informal setting.
Throughout the year The Crescent’s Engage programme runs a monthly Book Club, which is led by poet and Crescent tutor Ruth Carr. Each month a a new book is selected and then the group meet to discuss and enjoy exchange views on the book. The Crescent’s Book Club is free to attend.
