Digital Events for Schools & Families


Welcome to the Bradford Literature Festival Schools Programme 2021!

Under normal circumstances, our schools programme welcomes students from across the city to take part in a series of day-long literary celebrations, each following a particular theme. However, with Covid-19 still restricting events, this year we’re once again offering our hugely popular programme online, inviting not just schools, but also families, to join us for fun, free, educational digital events, available on demand from the comfort of your home or classroom.

Split into activity for both Primary age (5-11) and Secondary age (11-18) children, look out for age-range and key stage guidance, clearly stated at the top of each event listing. Age ranges reflect National Curriculum content, but events may also be enjoyed by older or younger children at teacher/parent/guardian discretion.

Almost all events come with a free downloadable educational resource pack, as well as suggested further activity for children and young people.

Featuring inspirational writers and performers from Bradford and beyond, including everything from talks and readings with your favourite writers to interactive performances and creative workshops, we hope you and your children will have fun learning with our 2021 schools programme.
