Part of: October half-term: WayWord Festival for kids

Activist, novelist, broadcaster and Storyhouse’s poet in residence Benjamin Zephaniah is live on the main stage to talk about his iconic collections of children’s poetry and stories – interviewed by children! The event is ideal for young people aged 6+ who love reading and writing stories – plus they’ll get the chance to ask Benjamin some questions of their own.

This is a very special event and a chance for families to be in the room with a writer who’s captured children’s imaginations for 40 years.

Benjamin Zephaniah is Storyhouse’s current artist in residence – his words are emblazoned around Storyhouse.
