Location Online

Join us for a celebration of books, hilarity and togetherness hosted by book creators Adrian Beck, Mick Elliott and Nat Amoore.

This hour of power will combine dad jokes, dancing and drawing in a live-streamed, interactive workshop. Spring off the couch and onto your feet for a boogie with Nat Amoore, party with DJ Becks while he spins his decks, and marvel at Mick Elliott’s ‘sketchy’ challenges.

Come dressed as your favourite book character, or get your air-guitar ready to rock, and go into the draw to win one of our special prize packs!
