London Schools' Festival of Books

Thank you to everyone for joining us at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in May to celebrate another fantastic week of exciting author events!


















Festival History

In partnership with Dulwich Picture Gallery and Inspire Me Education, we started the Southwark Reading Festival seven years ago, in order to open books and share the pleasure of reading with thousands of children from Southwark Schools. The project changed into the London School's Festival of Books in 2016.

The author events offered are free to classes from London primary schools and book out within days.
