From Shakespeare to Harry Potter, come and join Bournville BookFest 2020 for a wonderful celebration of storytelling at Town Hall, Birmingham!

At Bournville BookFest 2019 we hosted 4,000 children and teachers in a Town Hall takeover - and we’re planning an exciting new programme for next year's Literature Out of the Box week. Some of Britain's best-loved authors will be on stage; and we'll be holding inspirational shows to celebrate Shakespeare Week and World Poetry Day.

Tickets are just £3 per pupil, and teachers and teaching assistants go free.

So don't let your school miss out! Save the dates in your school diary today – Tuesday 17th March to Friday 20th March 2020.

The full programme and names of authors will be announced when tickets go on sale on Monday 9th September 2019.

Please email Josie Harrison on to register your interest in the Bournville BookFest 2020 Literature out of the Box Programme.
