Coming up at The Chester Library and the Wayword Fest

Cheshire West and Chester Libraries are once again excited to be working with Chester Performs for this year’s Wayword Festival.

Between 13th -19th February 2016, Chester Town Hall and libraries across the region will be awash with activities and events as authors, illustrators, TV stars, scientists, coders and even a beatboxer come together to make up the festival’s most interactive line-up ever.  The festival’s theme is Adventure and is aimed at primary school children seeking to beat boredom during the week’s school holiday.

There is a strong ‘maker’ element to this year’s WayWord Festival, with eight Cheshire libraries also hosting the festival by offering free craft activities throughout the week. Northwich, Winsford, Ellesmere Port, Blacon, Upton, Frodsham, Neston and Chester Libraries will all have a resident artist offering free arts and craft activities. Library sessions run Monday- Friday 10am-12.30pm with Chester also hosting Space Invaders on Saturday 13th February. Whether you want to stay for two minutes or two hours, all you need is your imagination! You can release your inner witch or wizard or take a thrilling adventure into the Jurassic Jungle if you dare!
