World Book Day Activities
It’s World Book Day on March 7, and to celebrate we’re hosting activities for little and big bookworms alike. Join us at Basildon Park on the 9 and 10 March for a children’s trail and a storytelling session on the Saturday, and exchange your £1 book voucher for an exciting new story.
Hunt for bookworms
We’ve got 10 little bookworms hiding in our books, and we need you to help us find them. Pick up a work sheet from Visitor Reception and start searching, and when you have found them all you could even design your own bookworm.
Lots of books to choose from
On World Book Day, £1 book vouchers will be handed out at schools and nurseries which you can exchange at our gift shop for a new story. We’ve got stories about Lego, mermaids, Percy Jackson and much more to suit everyone.
Our wonderful volunteers will be running a storytelling session on Saturday with your favourite children’s books. Check with Visitor Reception for the time when you arrive.
Why not get really involved in World Book Day and dress up as your favourite character – we would love to see your costumes!
