(PRWEB UK) 7 February 2014
From February 10th to 23rd, London's Southbank Centre will play host to 2014’s Imagine Children's Festival, sponsored by leading online literature retailer the Book People, and tickets are still available for a whole host of great events.
Imagine Children's Festival celebrates the very best in children's literature, and a number of leading children's authors are due to make appearances. However, there are plenty of events to entertain even non-bookworms, including dance, drama, comedy and a wide variety of other activities - so there really is something for everyone.
"We're delighted as ever to be a part of Imagine Children's Festival and we think it's safe to say that this year's line-up is its best yet," said Ryan Barham, editor at the Book People. "We really can't wait for it to get underway and the strength of this year's line-up just goes to show how much talent we currently have writing children's literature."
Tickets are still available to see 2012 Red House Children's Book Award winner Patrick Ness introduce his new novel for young adults More Than This on Saturday February 15th. The double Carnegie Medal-winning author - whose Chaos Walking trilogy met with commercial success and critical acclaim - will offer insight into what inspired him to write the book.
The votes are currently being counted for this year's Red House Children's Book Award, and the winner will be revealed at a special ceremony on February 22nd. There are also some tickets still available via Southbank Centre's website priced between £5 and £10.
Bedtime stories are a major theme of this year's Imagine Children's Festival, and tickets are also still available for Grandpa Joe's Giant Storytelling Bed. Inspired by Roald Dahl's classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Grandpa Joe's Giant Storytelling Bed celebrates the bonds forged between older and younger generations through the power of storytelling.
What's more, the Book People have dedicated a special online page to all the authors appearing at Imagine Children's Festival this month. A huge range of their books can be browsed and purchased here, or for more information about the festival click here.
