BookFest for Schools 2022 takes place here from February 28th - March 4th. It's completely free and all online - because we think every child should be inspired by brilliant books!

Celebrate reading and World Book Day with videos from some of Britain's best-loved authors.

We'll be releasing the names of all the authors involved in the New Year. Meanwhile, if you're a school and want to register for updates, free teaching resources and lesson plan ideas, and early access to the videos, join our mailing list:

Every video has an interactive element to them (we know 6-11 year olds like to be busy) and are all under 30 minutes long. Your class can make the most of the videos by doing the activities in the free learning packs, which will be published on this page.

"BookFest 2021 was a fantastic experience, with the whole school able to access content with ease. The quality and range of poets, authors and illustrators was truly inspiring." St Giles, Walsall
