The Book Trail along Sadlergate will be the very first Festival event and has been planned to coincide with the start of the schools' half term on 23 May and will continue right through the Festival.  Over 30 shop windows will display children's book characters and children will be able to identify which shops as they will be displaying a window sticker.  Children will be able to complete a quiz sheet, which participating shops and Waterstones will stock, and return it to Waterstones in St Peter's Quarter to be entered into a prize draw for book tokens.

 

Window displays in Irongate and The Strand

A number of shops along Irongate and The Strand will have book themed shop window displays to show their support for the Festival.
