Visiting With Your School

All the info you need to plan your trip to the festival.


Welcome to Craigmillar Book Festival for Schools! Our programme for schools will welcome a range of your favourite authors, illustrators and storytellers to Craigmillar. The pupils will enjoy live talks, interactive workshops and readings as we bring some amazing books and characters to life.


Books for Schools

Schools will receive copies of the author’s books prior to the event- to enable teachers to prepare children for meeting ‘their’ author and getting the very best from each session. Information about buying books will be available to schools upon booking.

The programme and brochure with booking info was distributed to all the schools in the Craigmillar cluster in September 2019.
