The Big Malarkey Festival is a celebration of children’s literature, stories and illustration, created by Hull Library Service for children, families and schools.
Join us on our beautiful site on East Park from 26 - 27 June 2021, 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 runs from Monday 21 - Friday 25 June and includes the James Reckitt Hull Children’s Book Awards and a great line up of workshops and performances for nursery to KS3.
The family weekend (26th & 27th 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 Festival.
