World Book Day will take place on Thursday 5th March 2020 – and our World Book Day workshops, activities, assemblies and author visits have been specially designed to help you and your pupils celebrate World Book Day 2019 by bringing your favourite books to life!

If you are interested in booking for World Book Day itself please get in touch as we sell out well in advance!

A Visit from Bookman - Character Visit
The world’s newest superhero, Bookman has the extraordinary power of bringing stories to life – and he'll fly into your school all set to help your pupils in doing the same. Armed just with his trusty Book Bag, he'll make an unexpected appearance at an assembly before leading classes through a series of exciting, engaging and enticing drama-based workshops (all differentiated for age). And the outcomes? Connection-making, Freeze-Frames and Talking Tableaux, illustrating key narrative moments from a host of well-loved stories!

Paige Turner's Fiction Mission
If the characters in our favourite stories only come to life when their tales are read, what would become of them if Mr Noah Magination got his way and had all books banned? Paige Turner is on a mission to save the fictional worlds that these characters live in and she’s going to need your pupils’ help. After introducing herself at a whole-school assembly, she’ll work with a number of classes, using age-differentiated drama approaches to bring some of their favourite characters to life, exploring what it is that makes them so wonderful and what we would stand to lose if we never had the chance to meet them in the first place. This is her only hope winning over Mr Magination and guaranteeing the survival of books and stories for future generations- and that hope lies in you!

Scenes from Shakespeare (also perfect for Shakespeare Week)
Shakespeare was a superb storyteller – and his stories still survive unscathed today! These exciting workshops, though, take him back to his roots – by taking a dramatic approach to his work. Working with one of our professional drama specialists, pupils will get an actor’s-eye-view of one of his plays – and have a chance to taste the text too!


CSI: Bookmark - Bookman Rides Again! - Character Visit
Already enjoyed A Visit from Bookman? Well, now you can now invite the homemade superhero back for 2019 with CSI: Bookmark - Bookman Rides Again!

After reacquainting himself with the children at an assembly, Bookman will meet each year group in turn, challenging them, in age-appropriate ways, to help him out of a pickle. He's been running a competition at his local library - but his arch-enemy has jumbled up all the entries! In a frenzy of connection-making, pupils will use their knowledge of a range of well-loved tales and, like Bookman himself, spread a love of reading before, we're sure, saving the day!

Author Visit - The Story of a Story - Where can you find a story seed and how do you help it to grow?
Join Sarah KilBride, author of the successful series Princess Evie’s Ponies, and follow the story of a story, from first sketches to publication. Sarah shares her notebooks and drafts, revealing where she finds her ideas and inspiration and introduces you to the team behind her books. Using a variety of drama and writing activities, join in the fun and embark on your very own story journey, creating the beginnings of a brand new adventure.

All of the workshops can be differentiated for age and require a minimum of 60 minutes (although we prefer longer) - preferably in a large space. You can choose from Macbeth, The Tempest, Romeo and Juliet, or A Midsummer Night’s Dream - and we’ll leave you with a whole host of suggestions for follow-up writing activities!
