Pyjamarama festival

Service/Activity is free

Pyjamarama is returning for a third time and will take place this year on Friday 14 May 2021.

Pyjamarama is all about getting children excited about reading, to make sure every child gets their bedtime story.

The Book Trust, who organise Book Start are asking for children around the country, in schools and nurseries, and at home, to spend a day reading, enjoying and sharing stories, all in the comfort of their pyjamas, and if possible to donate £1 to Book Trust to help all children have access to stories and to reading.

Your local library will have packs and will begin to distribute the Pyjamarama boxes with the books and materials from 28th April 2021. This includes free books for libraries to hand out to families.

This years book is ‘My pet star’

The books should be made available to pick up from libraries from 9th May 2021
