THE LITTLE FESTIVAL

The Little Festival

…where books are a lot of fun!

We are thrilled to announce the third edition of The Little Festival, a two day line up of online sessions exclusively for children ( 7yrs -13 yrs) packed with Indian & international children’s authors and storytellers.

The theme of this festival is There Is A Story Everywhere -all it needs is an imagination to look beyond the obvious

Our young viewers will be treated to a vast range of  stories by the authors themselves – Andy Griffiths,  Anuradha Jagalur,  Janaki Sabesh, Katie Bagli, Medha Rajadhyaksha, Ruskin Bond, Shobha Tharoor Srinivasan,  Shobha Vishwanath, Shruthi Rao and Tilottama Shome . They bring to life, stories   about artists, musicians, libraries, food, poetry and oh, so much more!

Gregg Dreisse, Shabnam Minwalla will conduct workshops while Gina and Guy Ghouse, introduce the Noongars of Australia through a musical performance

Come,  join the fun of listening to writers from across the world . There is, after all, a story everywhere around you!

The Little Festival is free to attend with no registration needed.
