Our schools programme welcomes students from Bradford and across West Yorkshire to take part in a series of day-long literary celebrations, each following a particular theme.

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 schools programme.

The main BLF Education Programme for 2022 has now ended, however, we do run smaller events throughout the year as well as outreach work in our communities.
