Children’s Book Festival 2014

The Forum Southend-on-Sea

Southend Children’s Book festival celebrates the best in children’s books.

11am – 12.30pm & 2-3.30pm
A Victorian funeral parlour might seem like an unlikely setting for a children’s book, but in fact it makes the perfect background for this spooky supernatural tale from Blue Peter Award winning author Gareth P Jones.
Ghosts, Ukuleles & a Dead Chicken
Gareth P Jones presents a short story in which you decide what happens next. Helly Hoxton & the Ghost Chicken of Highgate is based on the book, Constable & Toop and poses the questions: Should the orphan enter the cemetery? What will the chisel write on the gravestone? And how can a chicken be a ghost? A spooky, funny & unique event with actual ghost music performed live… or maybe that should be dead.
Become a spooky character and have your face painted too.
(Age 7-12)

Tickets £3 each and may be booked here for 11am-12:30 or here for 2-3.30pm or 01702 212573
