First Minister’s Reading Challenge Celebration Festival

Get ready for the First Minister’s Reading Challenge Celebration Festival

We’ll be celebrating the close of this year’s First Minister’s Reading Challenge with a very exciting online festival of author events on 14–18 June.

The virtual gates to the First Minister’s Reading Challenge Celebration Festival will open on Monday 14 June. Each day will feature a headline act online, as well as daily challenges to take part in. We’ll be announcing this year’s Reading Challenge winners, and all registered groups will receive a party pack to help you make it a celebration to remember!

Head to the Scottish Book Trust website to explore the full line up, along with all the information you need to watch the events online. Don’t worry if you can’t watch an event on the day it launches – all of the events will be available to watch on demand until the end of August 2021.

All you need to do is plan how you’re going to join in the celebration! Get started by taking a look at some of the print outs available to download on this page, including a Celebration Festival ticket, poster and resource with the full line-up of events and daily challenges.
