Surrey Libraries' Festival for Children is back, bigger and better than ever, in libraries across Surrey, from 24 May to 12 July.

Part of Off The Page, libraries' programme of children's events and activities, the festival will be full of exciting things for all ages to do including Manga and comic art workshops, performance poetry, author visits, creative writing, stop-frame animation, drumming workshops, story-telling, crafts and much more.

So, if you're looking for exciting things to keep the children occupied during spring half term and into the summer, make sure you book your Festival tickets right away.

See A F Harrold, creator of Fizzlebert Stump show off and wave his beard about; make a stop-frame animation to view on screen with Jellytree productions and create your own stories from beginning to end with Celebrate My Library, a project that helps us to put our libraries at the heart of every community.

Grab the chance to draw with Beano and Dr Who Adventures writer and illustrator Kev F Sutherland; write poems with Martin Daws, Young People's Laureate for Wales and create comic stories with Mo-Bot-High author Neill Cameron.

Listen to Jane Lawes talk about her `Gymstars' series and see props from Snow White, The Huntsman, Batman and other fabulous films. Party with Pebble the Penguin and join in with multi-lingual rhymetimes and multi-sensory storytimes.
