The South Ken Kids Festival is on for an incredibly fun five days of never before seen events, games, and competitions. There is a hot guest list, including one of Britain's most loved illustrators, Quentin Blake. The festival's patron is most famous for his collaboration with Roald Dahl, but he has also illustrated books for authors such as Joan Aiken and Dr. Suess. Other ilustrators at the event include Frédérique Bertrand, Emily Gravett, and the illustrator for the Horrid Henry Series, Tony Ross.
Between the 21st-25th November, the festival is celebrating it's 15th anniversary at the Institut Français. There will be some special treats in store, such as book signings, workshops, film & theatre, music, and a drawing jam, in which you draw along to music.
Entrance for one person is £15, but the more of you that go, the more you save:
The Solo pass – £15 The Duo pass – £ 20 The Trio pass – £25 The Family pass (4 to 7 people) – £ 30
You can also book other free and paid for events before the show. These include drawing classes, animation film screenings, talks, and ceremonies. For the 24th & 25th of November, you can also book a place at The Enchanted Library. It is a free thirty minute workshop, in which children aged 5 to 11 will be told the story of Red Riding Hood, be given vocal lessons by the Professional Exchange Theatre Group, and then record their own Red Riding Hood story. If you have an ipad, you will be able to download the My Books App, and save the story as a souvenir.
