Summer/Autumn 2019 Festivals

OK, yes you may have to worry a bit about parking and about more people being at an event than, as a home educator, you are used to.  But summer festivals are a great opportunity to be out and about with kids of all ages and, quite often, provide inspiration for further projects and educational ideas to fill up other summer days.  And if you can include one as part of a summer stay-cation, even better.  Here are some top ideas from around the UK:

Curious Arts Festival, 23 – 26 August 2019, Pippingford Park, East Sussex

Edinburgh International Book Festival, 10 – 26 August, Edinburgh

Green Man Festival, 15 – 18 August, Brecon Beacons, Powys

Just So Festival, 16 – 18 August, Cheshire

The Big Feastival, 23 – 25 August, Kingham (Oxfordshire)

Outside of summertime:

Henley Literary Festival, 28th Sep – 6th Oct 2019

North Cornwall Book Festival,  10 – 13 October, St Endellion Church, Port Isaac

Bath Children’s Literature Festival, 27 September – 6 October 2019, Bath
