Our story

An annual Children’s Book Festival.

A festival for children and families to celebrate books of all kinds, inspire new authors and enjoy reading, writing and storytelling with joy, fun and friendship.


It takes place in the beautiful surroundings of the famous old town of Pontypridd, nestling at the foot of the Rhondda and Cynon Valleys spilling out onto the banks of the river Taff, under the shadow of the world renowned Pontypridd bridge.

The festival has free entry, displays, props, music and activities as well as ticketed events with authors, readings, masterclasses and Q and As.
