The detective dogs are back for a swashbuckling pirate adventure!

Cardiff Children’s Literature Festival is held annually and aimed predominantly at primary school children aged 3-11. Since 2013, the festival’s goal has been to encourage a lifelong love of reading in young people, with an exciting ensemble of literary events in both English and Welsh, hosted by incredible guest authors and illustrators.

Each spring for a whole weekend, some of Cardiff city centre’s most iconic venues are taken over by a packed programme, including storytelling and book reading, writing and drawing workshops, craft activities, quizzes and games, and even the occasional appearance of a character or two!
