The Children's Bookshow

The Children’s Bookshow returns this September with another fabulous schools event. This time two greats of children’s literature, Judith Kerr and John Burningham will be in conversation with Nicolette Jones (Sunday Times Children’s Books Editor).

Hear tales from their childhood, learn about how they started to write and draw and discover where they found the inspiration for so many well-known children’s classics such as The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mr Gumpy’s Outing.

Teachers should contact Liz Neville at to book tickets and for further details. Learn more.


Please note: For your comfort and security, you may be subject to additional checks on your visit to London theatres – we appreciate your patience and understanding while these are taking place.

Tickets: Children £5.00

Accompanying adults go free
