STARS from the world of children’s literature will be beamed live into Henley’s Regal Picturehouse cinema next month to celebrate World Book Day.
Hosted by children’s writer and TV presenter Tony Robinson, The Biggest Book Show On Earth will be broadcast live via satellite from the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. The line-up of authors taking part in the festival includes Horrid Henry author Francesca Simon who will show how to bring characters to life, and Shirley Hughes who will explain how to use illustrations.
The event, on Thursday, March 7 at 10am is open to school parties and teachers who wish to attend should book tickets via the cinema’s box office.
Meanwhile, children at home can watch the events online by registering at the festival’s website.
More than half a million children from more than 75 countries logged on to watch the show last year.
World Book Day director Kirsten Grant said: “We are very excited about the fantastic bill for this year’s event. We can’t wait to spark the imagination of millions of children.”
