16 – 17 July
Awesome Authors as well as some of CBBC’s biggest stars will be in Birmingham for two action-packed days of events and live broadcasts.
At the Library of Birmingham, writers including Jacqueline Wilson (Hetty Feather) and David Baddiel (The Person Controller) will speak about their work and you will have the chance to take part in workshops.
In Centenary Square, there will be an opportunity to learn more about your favourite CBBC shows and watch as Blue Peter and Newsround broadcast live from the event. You’re invited to try hands-on activities in interactive zones created by BBC Learning, including a Wolfblood Zone and a CBBC HQ Zone.
If that’s not enough, CBBC Live will be launching the summer BookBench trail at the event! Try out the specially-decorated BookBenches for size and get the chance to decorate your very own with the help of local authors and illustrators.
No tickets are required for Centenary Square and families can simply turn up on the day. For more information please see: – http://www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours/shows/cbbc_live_awesome_authors_2016.
