In May 2018, the Book Festival travels to Fife’s Rothes Halls for ReimagiNation: Glenrothes, a special pop-up festival marking 70 years of the New Town. Produced in partnership with Fife Cultural Trust, the Festival will feature brilliant events with amazing and inspirational authors for all ages.
Alongside a packed public programme for adults and families, ReimagiNation: Glenrothes includes a fantastic Schools Programme on 17 & 18 May for schools and home educators. All events in the Schools Programme are FREE to attend and we may also be able to assist in any travel costs involved with bringing your class to the Rothes Halls. As well as fun, interactive events with authors, there will be a range of free additional activities including arts and crafts, pop-up stalls and post-event book signings.
Tickets for all events are available to BOOK NOW. Where there is significant demand for events, priority will be given to schools in Glenrothes, schools in areas of economic need, and schools who have not previously attended an Edinburgh International Book Festival event.
You can find more information on the Schools Programme, plus all the information you need to make a booking, on our Booked! site at booked.edbookfest.co.uk
