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 6–10 June.

The virtual gates to the First Minister’s Reading Challenge Celebration Festival will open on Monday 6 June. There will be headline events every day, as well as fun activities to do together. We’ll also be announcing this year’s Reading Challenge winners, and all registered schools will receive a party pack to help you make it a celebration to remember!

You'll be emailed a link to the festival events first thing on Monday 6 June, where you'll find all of the events and activities. 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 2022.

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.
