Primary Schools

Primary Schools - Wells Festival of LiteratureMuch of our education work throughout the year is with primary schools, culminating in a special event at the Town Hall during the Festival to which Year 6 children from local schools are invited. This has proved increasingly popular over the years and in 2016 demand was such that we ran two sessions. We are extremely grateful to author Piers Torday for speaking at this event in 2016. A similar event is planned for Glastonbury schools in 2017.
