MAKE A DONATION
Over 90% of the income we need to produce the Festival each year is provided when you buy a ticket. Without our ticket sales revenue, we’ve got a difficult year ahead. We know this is a worrying time for everyone, but if you are able please consider making a donation so that we can continue to bring you the Barnes you love. Whatever you can give will make a big difference.

“I’m delighted to welcome everyone to the very special Barnes Children’s Literature Festival. As the Chancellor of Roehampton I’m proud that the University is in partnership with the Festival and will involve our lecturers and students in the programme. As a writer of children’s books I have very fond memories of taking part in the Festival myself, and know it to be delightful, imaginative, innovative – and beautifully organised.
Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Chancellor, University of Roehampton
