events Programme

Tales On Moon Lane are involved in a year-round programme of events, from school author visits and literary festivals to book launches and in-store workshops. We are super-excited to meet new and established authors and bring their stories to children.


South Ken Kids Festival 18th - 24th Nov 2019

The South Ken Kids Festival is back for its 22nd edition! This year, they welcome some of the most talented children’s writers and illustrators from both sides of the Channel and beyond: Axel Scheffler, Magali Le Huche, Colas Gutman, Sophy Henn, Emily Rand, Piret Raud, Joe Todd-Stanton, Catharina Valckx and many more!


Guests will be giving workshops in more than 40 schools around London and at the Institut français, where you can also expect a programme packed with exciting public events, under the patronage of the marvellous Quentin Blake!


Tales on Moon Lane will be there, along with La Page, selling books at our stand at the Institut Français. 


Ready, steady, GO!
