Events

This is the page to check out event services we offer.

They vary from virtual author visits, local story time, festivals and face to face author sessions and activities.

Virtual Author Visits

We work with some incredible authors to deliver events. Imagine your favourite author being beamed live into your school. The possibilities are endless!

Back to the boring but essential stuff. The support offered includes an event tech team and ourselves. The prices are as low as £50 per session and each session is available to a maximum of 5 schools at a time. 

Authors we are hoping to work with:

Tom Palmer

Sophie Anderson

Jennifer Killick

Gareth P. Jones

Laura Henry-Allain

See Twitter feed below for more authors.

Story time for preschoolers

We work with a range of  authors, storytellers and musicians to offer a fab session full of listening, movement and fun. This is an ideal service for preschoolers and children that have additional needs and involves toys and postgraduate playworkers to add the ultimate support for the children. We can visit nurseries, schools and theatres and wherever else we are called. Authors available will be listed once availability is checked. 

Kids literature Festivals and larger events

We have a really amazing service for festivals, our specialisation is interactive sessions that involves authors, illustrators, activities and lots of fun. We have our own rainbow bell tent and lots of toys and tables for crafts too. This service is also perfect for wellbeing and family festivals. We cover the UK.

School Author Visits

We host author visits, this involves lots of schools in an area receiving a visit from an author which is really something amazing and the entire school potentially meeting their book heroes and heroines. Please sign up to our newsletter to find out which authors we are working with in the coming months. We are also happy to help with requests. A range of topics within the curriculum can also be tied to a particular author. For example, Tom Palmer and the 2nd World War.

Tech support

We are proud to offer a good level of tech support and can work with whatever technology is available in house.

Event history

Bear Hunt Books might be a new online shop but prior to opening the bookshop (Covid shut down the events industry March 2020), owner Michelle Peters had been working in the events industry since 2007. Do check out Bluey and Baloo for more information.
