More information from organisers:

The South Ken Kids Festival celebrates its 25th birthday this year. The festival will welcome some of the most talented children’s writers and illustrators. Guests will be at the Institut français for exciting public events.

This year is also the 20th anniversary of The Children’s Bookshow with an exclusive exhibition, as well as the 50th anniversary of Gallimard Jeunesse.

The event’s theme centres around the pursuit of peace in Europe, issues around the environment and to mark the European Year of Youth.

The South Ken Kids Festival encourages each participant to be creative and explore the art of drawing and illustration. Bilingual throughout, the festival is an occasion to highlight children’s writing, illustration, translation: books in all their glory. The Institut français throws open its doors to all readers young and old, to watch star illustrators draw, attend family film screenings, or take part in workshops, a slam poetry competition and learn more about filmmaking.
