From dragons to political diaries, with rom coms, thrillers and a glass of wine along the way, there’s something for bookworms of all ages in Malton this autumn.
Ryedale Book Festival is returning this September promising exciting dragon-themed literary activities to fire children’s imaginations and a stellar line-up of award-winning writers, including a former Home Secretary, entertaining wine expert and respected historian, for the grown-ups. Their compact programme certainly has quality stamped all over it.
The main festival weekend starts on Friday 21st September with some fantastic opportunities for schools to take part in events as part of the Festival’s out-reach programme. Then after school, young readers can enjoy a movie night with Cressida Cowell where they will meet the author and watch the film How to Train Your Dragon.
On Saturday 22nd September, there is a full day of fun literary activities inspired by lots of stories about dragons involving magic, poetry, pottery painting, biscuit decorating, illustration, craft as well as reading. The day concludes with a bedtime story read by award-winning illustrator Emily Gravett.
