Watch the Secondary Schools Programme

Available to watch live or on catch up, the digitally devised Festival programme is intended to bring authors straight from their homes into your classrooms and even to pupils learninfrom home.

These hand-picked, of the moment authors, were chosen to engage and enthuse your pupils no matter their age group. From Primary to Sixth Form, each key stage package is sure to excite and connect with your class, inspiring them to read more and find joy in the written and spoken word.

Next Live Event


If you have any questions for the authors please contact us on the email below before the event starts. It is great to have pupil and teacher interaction in our events. Please remember to include the child’s first name or the teacher’s name and the school community they belong to.



Recordings will be available to watch after each event. We will endeavour to load them as soon as possible. Please note a clock counter is visible for the first minute or so while we waited for the audience to join.
