BOOKMARK Children in Schools Festival - first event hailed a great success!

12th Sep 2016

  Author Bob Harris a big hit with over 200 children at Blairgowrie Community Campus!

Over 200 children from P4/5 age , were kept enthralled by Bob Harris' Norse stories at Blairgowrie Community Campus - no mean feat!

Bob took one child from each school to act out the pantomime characters as he told the story. The rest of the children were fully engaged as they had to continually participate as pantomime audiences do, finishing up with questions, of which there were many.

Bob thought the venue, Blairgowrie Community Campus, which is the new home of our Bookmark 2016 Festival, was terrific and he was so pleased  with the children's participation  and responses, not to mention the huge number of his books which were sold - in their dozens!

There was great participation from the Headteachers and staff involved who picked up the enthusiasm of the pupils, making it a great and successful event all round!


A really big thank you to you and everyone at Bookmark for doing such a splendid job. I felt I was made truly welcome and everything was very well-arranged and proceeded so smoothly. I can only guess at the massive work done to make this possible. Well done! Please pass on my thanks to the other members of the great Bookmark team. I‘m pleased my event seemed to go well. A great venue and a lovely audience. Lin was a fantastic interviewer, too! I‘d be delighted to come back again any time. Also to take part in the schools programme, if possible.
