Pop Up Storytelling Armchair Presents:
Rosie Sandler – Agatha Oddly: The Secret Key and Murder at the Museum

Agatha Oddly has been a detective for as long as she can remember – she’s just been waiting for her first big case. And nothing gets bigger than saving the City of London from strange goings-on. With a secret key that gives her access to a whole hidden side of London, Agatha is perfectly poised to solve any mystery. Suitable for ages 8+.

Stamp Your Passports at Festival Learning Destinations

We’re helping our good friends at Essex Children’s University to provide 5-14 year olds with exciting learning experiences outside school. Once issued with a Passport to Learning, ‘CU Learners’ collect stamps and attend a special Graduation Ceremony. All Essex Book Festival YOUNG ESSEX events are CU Learning Destinations – bring your passport, get it stamped, and enjoy your learning journey! Find out how to get your very own Passport to Learning at essexchildrensuniversity.co.uk
