The Reading Trees at Liverpool ONE

Imagination: It Grows on Trees

We do literature festivals a bit differently around these parts. If you go down to the woods this April, you’re in for a world of surprises, as the Reading Trees take root, and grow out of the pavements of Liverpool ONE.

The iconic celebration of the written word returns for its fourth year and will take place in Paradise Street until 30th April. It’s all about sharing: sharing your love of a good story, sharing your passion for the printed word.

Take a break from shopping, grab five minutes on your way to lunch, and swap your beloved book, pick up a new one, and get lost in a whole new world. This year, Liverpool ONE has teamed up with St Vincent’s Primary School, Liverpool Central Library, The Reader and Bluecoat to name just a few and will offer a range of performances, workshops and author appearances for the whole family to enjoy.
Liverpool ONE’s Donna Howitt told us:

“This year we’re encouraging the people of Liverpool to not just read their favourite stories, but to share them too.”

“We’ve amassed a wide collection of books suitable for all ages, allowing parents to introduce their young ones to the characters that shaped their childhoods and maybe even uncover new favourites.”

Throughout the festival, Liverpool ONE will be encouraging us all to share our favourite childhood stories on social media with plenty of prizes to be won. Look out for the special bookmarks tucked inside the books. We love stuff like this. Escape the city for a while - you never know where you might end up.

Runs until 2 May.
