We have just started to announce our exciting line-up for February 2020.

Korky Paul, Nick Sharratt &
Sarah McIntyre

will be headlining the big stage!

Korky Paul was born in Zimbabwe. He is a much loved artist and among his illustrated work is the Winnie and Wilbur series. He is a patron of The Art Room, Pegasus Theatre, ARCh and Reading Quest.

Known only to himself as the 'World's Greatest Portrait Artist', he regularly visits schools promoting his passion for drawing.
He works in Oxford.


Nick Sharratt is well known for illustrating books by Jacqueline Wilson, Julia Donaldson, Michael Rosen and Jeremy Strong and also writes and illustrates his own picture books. He has also been the official illustrator for World Book Day and won lots of awards.


Sarah McIntyre Illustrator and writer Sarah McIntyre is easy to spot in her pointy glasses and fancy hats. Sometimes she writes and draws picture books and comics herself, including Dinosaur Firefighters, The New Neighbours, There's a Shark in the Bath and Vern and Lettuce. Sometimes she works on books with other people, including her friend David O'Connell who co-wrote and co-illustrated Jampires with her. When she makes books with her friend Philip Reeve, they both brainstorm the story ideas together, then Philip writes them and Sarah illustrates them. (But occasionally they swap roles for a bit.) Their books include The Legend of Kevin, Kevin's Great Escape, Pugs of the Frozen North, Oliver and the Seawigs and several more.
