Manchester Literature Festival and Z-arts are delighted to announce the return of Michael Rosen, one of the UK’s best-known figures in the children’s book world. The fifth Children’s Laureate and a passionate advocate of children’s reading, Michael has published numerous poetry collections, picture books and anthologies for children including We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, This is Our House and Centrally Heated Knickers. Come and hear Michael perform some of his favourite poems at what is sure is to be an unforgettable event suitable for children at Key Stage 2 / children aged 7+ and their families.

This event ties in with the fantastic touring exhibition from Discover Children’s Story Centre, Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake and Bad Things, visiting Z-arts between 17 September and 17 December this year. Schools and families can step inside a humongous chocolate cake and explore a secret larder, swishy swashy and splash splosh your way through a Bear Hunt. Find out more
