Children’s program from 11.30 am

The Carnival of Literatures welcomes children of all age groups to join in on the fun! There will be a jumping castle, face painting, balloons, a reading lounge, a creative table where kids can draw and express their creativity and a kiddie’s corner for the really small ones. All this will be under professional supervision, so that parents can relax and enjoy the readings and other performances as well. We are looking forward to having a great festival where all members of the family are welcome and will be entertained!
