Hannah Lee introduces My Hair, a heart-warming, joyous and vibrant new children’s book about one little girl’s search for the best party hair.

Join Hannah and the volunteers at Rochdale Central Library for a fun morning of crafts and laughs. Children can listen to a reading of the book, then design their own unique hairstyles using a variety of cut and stick mediums to take home. Start your storytelling adventure by creating your very own character soup and crafting a cool story to take home.

Suitable for: Ages 4+ (Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult)

Accompanying adults are not required to buy tickets for this event.

The festival box office is located at Touchstones Rochdale. Open Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 5pm.

Rochdale Literature & Ideas Festival is aimed at celebrating and promoting the Maskew Collection of classic literature and philosophy at Rochdale Central Library, encouraging people to engage with books and ideas. Rochdale couple, Annie and Frank Maskew, met in Rochdale Library in the 1950s and shared a passion for reading and thinking. They left a sum of money to be used on resources and events related to literature and philosophy to ensure classic works are available for future generations.

Entry fee: Book in advance - Children £5, adults free
