Pop Up Festival Presents – Highlight Report

Pop Up Festival Presents was devised in response to the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. It built on the learning gained in 2020 from switching from in-person to online author visits and classroom workshops during Pop Up Festival and an extended pilot for pupils in special schools.

We programme 21 live events to be delivered by 24 children’s authors and streamed into classrooms across the UK and internationally. 46,003 pupils and their teachers from 697 schools attended 1,677 author readings, performances, and workshops.



“This is the first year we have attended Pop Up Festival but it won't be the last.”
