Foyles is planning a "Summer of Fun" children’s festival, featuring events with favourite characters such as Alice in Wonderland, Star Wars and Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep.
The festival will take place during 25th July-30th August at Foyles stores across London and Bristol.
Themes of art, nature, fantasy and science will run across the festival and Foyles will aim to bring books to life with immersive theatre experiences, visits from kids’ favourite characters, film screenings and workshops.
Minecraft, Where’s Wally, Alice in Wonderland, Star Wars and craft events with Aardman, creators of Shaun the Sheep, will all feature across the 0-5, 5-8, 8-12 and 12+ age groups and highlights include a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and the chance to build your own Star Wars droid.
A Foyles spokesperson said: “Taking place during the school holidays, Foyles Summer of Fun is the perfect way for kids and families to immerse themselves in their favourite stories, books and characters.”
Full programme details will be announced nearer the time.
