This festival opens on the 8th of July and will take place over the two weeks of the July school holidays (8-23 July 2017), in over 24 venues in the Wellington region.  Beyond the Page will lead children and young people on a journey through different aspects of storytelling, creating experiences for them to immerse themselves in and express their creativity.

The festival is aimed at the 53,000 children and young people aged five to 18 in the Greater Wellington region.

There will be a wide variety of events drawing from a pool of local artists as well as national figures. Some of our key events include: Royal New Zealand Ballet story times, writing workshops by the 2017 Storylines Margaret Mahy Medal award winner - Des Hunt, wearable arts demonstrations with Fifi Colston, robots, creative writing with Jo Morris, immersive & interactive story creation in collaboration with Escapemate, as well as Te Reo Wainene o Tua who will deliver a Te Reo Māori storytelling kaupapa.

Our local store will be hosting free workshops at 11am on Thursday 13 & 20 July. The sessions will introduce children to the skills they need to be a nurturing pet owner. This school holidays the focus will be on teaching children on the essentials on caring for fish or reptiles including how much to feed them, how to decorate and maintain their housing and the signs of a happy and healthy pet!

Answering all of those scaly questions such as “Do fish sleep?”, “How do I hold a lizard?”, the workshops will include interactive activities - face painting, activity booklets and a colouring-in competition.

There will also be the opportunity to ask the in-store experts for advice, and children who complete the workshop will take home a certificate at the end to proudly display on their wall or fridge.

Although bookings aren’t necessary, the events are usually well attended so it’s advisable to arrive early.
