We were truly honoured to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2021 and we join the whole world in mourning Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Our thoughts and condolences are with the Royal Family and with everyone whose lives she touched during her extraordinary reign. We will continue to be inspired everyday by her lifetime of service.

LOVE THE FESTIVAL? MAKE A DONATION!

The Barnes Children’s Literature Festival is entirely organised by unpaid volunteers and all our programmes are funded by your ticket purchases and donations. We’re so grateful for any gift, big or small, that helps us bring you more of the Barnes you love.

“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.
Enjoy, everyone!”

Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Chancellor, University of Roehampton
