The magical town of Balingup, in WA’s south west will come alive on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July, 2018 for this year’s ‘Telling Tales in Balingup’. A fabulous story telling event perfectly suited to primary school aged children 4yrs – 14yrs.

Smack bang in the middle of the July school holidays, this weekend of story telling, creative writing workshops, illustration workshop, book binding and kite making sessions offers families a wonderful weekend of interactive fun.

Last year’s Parade of much loved ‘book characters’ included the Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts, Peter Pan and Captain Hook – and it was a real hit with the children. The Parade is being expanded this year and will take place on Saturday 12.30pm – 1.30pm. Balingup townsfolk need little encouragement to dress up, so big kids and small can join in the fun!

A host of published WA authors and illustrators including Norman Jorgensen, Deb Fitzpatrick, Gabrielle Evans, Eileen Forrestal, Josh Langley, Cristy Burne and a host of others will present interactive workshops throughout the weekend. A number of indigenous artists and story tellers will join the talented line-up this year with Beccy Garlett sure to capture the imagination and interest of big kids and small! A multiple of sessions are on offer at any given time so you can select a session which best suits you and your children.

Children will also be able to learn the art of traditional book binding, and take home their very own mini-book.

Balingup is renowned for its fabulous events and is sure to host a weekend worth attending. For more information check out the details on page.
