2021 – change to schools’ programme

Due to restrictions and concerns over Covid infections, we will not be running our normal schools’ programme this year. Instead, we are offering a special “Taste of Dahl” even, on Sunday, 24th October at Frinton Tennis Club. Please see the page for more information

Schools’ Programme

Each year, Frinton Literary Festival arranges for children’s authors and illustrators to visit all the local primary schools, as well as Tendring Technology College to talk about their work and their books with pupils. This is a service that is provided free by the festival, thanks to the continued support of local sponsors and loyal festival goers.

We hope this helps to promote the love of literature amongst the young people of our community.

This year, we are pleased to welcome Abi Elphinstone, Piers Torday, Emma Craigie and Jonathan Mayo.
