Lister Park: Saturday 4th September

Free entry, join us for our final family fun day!
Bradford Literature Festival’s final Family Fun Day takes place in Lister Park on Saturday 4th September. With activities starting at 10.30am, it’s free to attend with no booking required. Join us for a fun day out!

We have theatre and storytelling, live music, craft sessions and workshops to choose from. You can also take part in a book hunt, nature trail and much more. Read on for some of the highlights.

Peter Pan Flies Again 
Come with us on a theatre adventure for all the family as we fly “straight on ‘til morning”… award winning family theatre company Wrongsemble will be performing a magical musical pop up adventure in Peter Pan Flies Again. All it takes is a little faith, trust and pixie dust…

Nature Quest and Look for a Book! 
Bradford Stories will be hiding books for you to find! Keep your eyes peeled and you might receive a free book. You’ll also be able to pick up your free Nature Quest activity, which will take you on an adventure through the park.

An alternative Peter Pan!
Cecil Green Arts will be running clay model making workshops inspired by the Peter Pan statue in the park. You can make your own fantastical creature which will all come together as part of a special installation at the end of the day.

Storytelling and Craft Sessions 
Join us for interactive storytelling sessions and Morwenna Catt will be hosting our hugely popular craft tent where you can have fun making crafts inspired by the Wrongsemble shows.

We have some great workshops including learning all the skills of the circus with Open Source Arts, a baby rave for our youngest visitors with Boom Chikka Boom, a dance workshop with Leeds Dance Studio and bring your imagination along to our poetry workshop with Sharena Lee Satti.

We hope to see you there!
