Three of Sligo’s leading cultural organisations have come together for a third year to host the Sligo Children’s Book Festival, celebrating family literacy and creativity of parents and young children.
The Model arts centre, Kids’ Own Publishing Partnership and the Hawk’s Well Theatre have created an action-packed festival featuring storytelling, theatre, shadow puppetry, poetry play, lego workshops, music, a show all about books and the return of the Kids’ Own Book Factory to inspire and entertain children and parents alike.
