The South Ken Kids Festival has at heart to reach out across London and beyond. Last year over 40 schools from nurseries to secondary schools were involved in the festival. From 19 to 23 November we offer different workshops, talks with authors, film screenings, theatre and translation: in French, English or both. Join us at the Institut français or let the festival come to you!
In order to give children unforgettable experiences of the world of book-making, story-writing and illustration, we offer a wide range of events. This year, we are:

  • Bringing renowned artists into classrooms for special workshops.
  • Hosting specially tailored events for schools at the Institut français (plays, talks, free film screenings and meet the author events.)
  • Holding a multilingual poetry slam for schools to take part in.
