Are you ready for the next chapter?
Following the unprecedented success of The Big Hoot's education programme, The Little Hoot, we are delighted to bring you The Big Read!
An unmissable creative education event in 2016 for Birmingham and the West Midlands, it will celebrate the region's creativity as well as the written word.
Schools and community groups are invited to decorate benches shaped as open books with designs inspired by their favourite novels, comics, poems and prose.
The Wild in Art creative education event brought to you by presenting partner The Schools of King Edward VI, and in association with the National Literacy Trust and Birmingham Children's Hospital, will culminate next summer in a region-wide display of the adorned BookBenches in cultural hubs, leisure complexes and shopping centres. They will be colourful and innovative backdrops to live events and workshops linked to literacy development.
Stay tuned while we're hard at work putting the finishing touches to the website.
