“We are new to the area with a profoundly deaf pre-school aged daughter. I was nothing short of overjoyed to see so many BSL interpreted and deaf-friendly events suitable for my child. This is a rarity.

The staff engaged beautifully with my daughter, who enjoyed the dance performance, but what really struck me was the amazing community feel at the festival. I didn’t know until we went this year that BookFest is worth clearing the diary for!”
