Inspired by a 10-year-old, book-loving, girl’s mis-reading of a sign about ‘The Reading Festival’, Gwealan Tops will be hosting The Big ReadFest, with a focus on all things literary, for children from Redruth and the surrounding villages and families across Cornwall on Saturday 18th September 2021.

With live readings, performances and storytelling throughout the day, a chance to ‘meet the author’, a reading corner with a Book Swap, a range of workshops suitable for all ages, plus lots of fun activities, this is sure to be an exciting day to extend and develop the imaginations of children and young people from Redruth and across Cornwall. There will also be refreshments available.

The Festival will take place at Gwealan Tops Adventure Playground in Redruth – using the old school building and the   large free-play site, with structures, swings and slides as well as wild areas and lots of space to roam, explore, experiment and create, which will have a team of experienced staff working on-site throughout the day.

Don’t forget to get your tickets – there are limited numbers available!
