Families, head to We Invented The Weekend for the Hey Duggee Story Trail, inspired by the children’s TV character and presented with The National Literacy Trust and Salford Community Leisure Pop-Up Library.
Follow the trail and create your own story adventure around the festival! Start on the Reading Lawn where you can grab a book from the Salford mobile library and take a seat on one of the colourful BookBenches from the Salford Literacy Trail. From there, visit the Picture This exhibition at The Lowry to take part in one of many activities themed around the nation’s favourite children’s book illustrators.
Cross the canal to IWMN for their Story Seekers workshops. Finish at the Reading Lawn to collect your very own Hey Duggee Reading Badge (and keep your eyes peeled for Duggee, Elmer the Elephant and some CBeebies’ favourites appearing across the weekend).
Starting at The Reading Lawn, MediaCityUK.
