National Libraries Day - Brighton

  • Jubilee Library Jubilee Street Brighton, BN1 United Kingdom (map)

Use it, Love it, Join it. It's National Libraries Day on Saturday 6 February. Come and celebrate with us at Jubilee Library.

Chris Riddell Children's Laureate will be in conversation with Julia Eccleshare writer, broadcaster and lecturer, and the Guardian's children's books editor. There will be live drawing from Chris, a chance to ask your questions plus have your books signed too.

Poetry By Heart County Contest with performances by Tommy Sissons, Michael Parker and Kay Walton.

Poetry By Heart is a national competition designed to encourage pupils aged 14-18 to learn and to recite poems by heart. Not in an arm-waving, props-supported thespian extravaganza, but as the outward and audible manifestation of an inwardly-understood and enjoyed poem. Come along and hear young people from across Sussex.

It's all free and open to all.
