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.
Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Chancellor, University of Roehampton
