Children from aged 3 to 11 years (accompanied by a parent/guardian) are invited to join in Dartford’s Book Festival.

The event is a celebration of classic children’s literature as well as the latest publishing sensations.

Activities will include arts & crafts, storytelling, interactive characters and lots more. Every child will receive a FREE bag of books, and we are hoping that some of your favourite book characters are available to make an appearance.

Timed one hour sessions run between 9.30am and 4pm.Tickets are just £3 and are available to Dartford residents only. 

Book tickets.

The first session at 9.30am each day is a designated ‘quiet’ session with fewer places available.

Accompanying adults and non-participating children under 3 years do not need a ticket. (Once you have purchased a ticket, we regret that they are non-refundable, and the timeslot  cannot be amended.)

Children are welcome to dress as their favourite character. So come and join us, we can’t wait to see you.
