The Adelaide Writers’ Week Kids’ Weekend returns with two big days of stories, painting, printing, parades and a giant mouse. Join in for some full-on fun!
The Story Tent is back and this year will feature the antics of Andy Griffiths, the magic that is Story Trove and the wonderful Lucy Cousins will be there with the one and only Maisy. Evelyn Roth’s Nylon Zoo will be leading the parade. Nest Studio returns with new activities as well as favourites such as Little Artists and the Press Club.
Maisy Mouse returns to Kids’ Weekend and this time she is bringing along her creator Lucy Cousins for a kids only mural making session. Mr Peacock will be there too and he’ll tell Maisy stories. Sessions at 10am and 12pm each day.
Evelyn Roth’s Nylon Zoo
The delightful Evelyn Roth returns with her Nylon Zoo. Come along, grab a costume and prepare for a parade, followed by a very special story.
In the big white tents Nest Studio will be making poetry books and hosting the Press Club and Little Artists. Drop by for a story or maybe a game and please help make the official Writers’ Week bookmarks.
The Story Tent
This year the Story Tent will feature a swag of writers including the sometimes naughty Andy Griffiths. Story Trove will tell stories in Foley and Slingsby will introduce a young king.
