Big Bright Red Auction for Bath Children’s Literature Festival 2015

The Bath Children’s Literature Festival was founded in 2007 by Gill and John McLay and has continued to be a strong presence in the literature world, currently maintaining the title of largest dedicated children’s book festival in the UK. This year, select Bright artists have been invited to get involved with the 2015 promotional marketing & fundraising for the event.

The ethos of the festival is, and always has been, to entertain children, and to enthuse them about reading:

 ‘We aim to create a friendly, family atmosphere in which young book fans can come along to Festival events and meet their favourite authors and book characters…Signing queues after some events are legendary and can last up to three hours for the biggest names.’

Each year an illustrator has drawn a Red Chair and produced a physical piece of artwork which has been used in promotion & marketing for the festival – previous artists include globally renowned Chris Riddell (2015 Children’s Laureate), Emily GravettTony RossDavid McKee & Axel Sheffler, to name a few.
