Beyond the Page

A literature festival for children and their family

7 – 22 July 2018






Announcement of the 2018 festival programme will be made soon – stay tuned!


Back for a second successful year, with a festival programme brimming with literary adventures for tamariki and their whānau, Beyond the Page is a children’s festival that will surprise and delight.

Featuring well known authors, illustrators, and performers, you will have the opportunity to explore your creative side, be inspired by spell-bounding performances, pick up a new skill, and even chat with a robot.

Wellington City Libraries, Hutt City Libraries, Upper Hutt Libraries, and Kāpiti Coast District Libraries are the creative force behind Beyond The Page, and are excited to bring this festival to you free of charge.
