Schools Event With Philip Pullman

We are thrilled to have won a nationwide competition to host the bestselling and multi-award-winning author Philip Pullman.

The event will be a special schools' evening taking place on 21 June 2018. Children’s author Katherine Woodfine, writer of The Sinclair’s Mysteries and presenter of radio show Down The Rabbit Hole, will host the evening.

The evening is exclusively invitation only. School librarians from a selection of local primary and secondary schools have been offered two tickets, one for themselves and one for a pupil of their choosing. To mark the special occasion, we have commissioned personalised bookplates for all attendees, to be designed by local illustrator Katharine McEwen. Attendees will also be given a special certificate of attendance designed by the illustrator as a keepsake.

The evening will be photographed and recorded, with recordings of the evening available to all attending schools for use as a classroom resource.
