THE BIG MALARKEY FESTIVAL LOGO

 

The Big Malarkey Festival is a celebration of children’s literature, stories and illustration, created by Hull Library Service for children, families and schools.

 

THE BIG MALARKEY FESTIVAL

Join us on our beautiful site on East Park from 25 - 30 June 2019, to meet authors and illustrators, poets and performers, musicians and story tellers, and have a go yourself in practical hands on workshops. 

Our schools programme includes the James Reckitt Hull Children’s Book Awards and a great line up of workshops and performances for nursery to KS3 – details to be announced in February 2019.

The family weekend (29th & 30th June) presents two jam-packed days of activities, for anyone age 0 – 16 who has ever enjoyed a good story! From puppetry to zines to animation to the latest technology in our Makerspace tent, there’s something for everyone at The Big Malarkey.  

Watch this space for updates on the 2019 festival or go to www.thebigmalarkeyfestival.com to subscribe to our newsletter.
