Nick Butterworth @ MCBF 2017 Family Fun Day


Join Nick Butterworth, award-winning children’s author and creator of hit CBeebies series Q Pootle 5, for an amazing interactive show about the magic of storytelling and imagination. Nick will bring alive the adventures of some of his favourite creations, including Q Pootle 5 and Percy the Park Keeper, and offer a behind-the-scenes peek at how Q Pootle 5 jumped from page to screen. The first session at 10.15am is aimed at the under 5s. A second session at 1pm is aimed at the over 5s.

Nick will also be bringing Q Pootle 5 with him to meet new friends. Be sure to bring your camera for a chance to snap a picture of your little one with the friendly little alien.

These sessions are part of the the Manchester Children’s Book Festival which welcomes everyone to the 2017 Family Fun Day - a full Saturday of free activities at the Manchester Metropolitan University All Saints Campus. Come along and join the fun – there’ll be something for everyone, from pre-readers and nursery age-children to teens and families. Saturday 24th June 10am - 4pm.
