Children and Families

Baillie Gifford Children's Programme

There's always loads to do and see in the Baillie Gifford Children's Programme. Younger kids can catch up with the playground's latest book buzz while hot debates and exciting graphic novel events are designed to engage teenagers. Parents can discover new ideas for bedtime stories and brush up on their storytelling skills and our events on child development and education are useful not only for education professionals, but for parents and carers too.

We programme hundreds of events each year for children from tots to teens including interactive events with authors and illustrators, fun performances, comic workshops, fascinating debates and more - and there are many free events too.

There's plenty on offer at the Book Festival to create a memorable day for families and young people.
