The #LYFF2017 Guide for Bookworms

The LYFF2017 Guide for Bookworms

Thursday 2nd March was not only World Book Day, but also Dr Seuss’s birthday! To celebrate, here’s the first of our guides for what’s on, starting with events that kids who love books will not want to miss this Easter:

Leeds Easter Eggstravaganza
14-17 April, Leeds Town Hall
All ages, best suited to 5+
From £6.50 – £30 Family Pass
Combine their love of Dr Seuss with Easter fun. Our adventure in rhyme with Sneaky Experience is perfect for anyone who has ever loved Dr Seuss (no matter how old you are. Parents: you’ll have a brill time too!). The Town Hall will be transformed into an Easter adventure with crazy characters including the Zing with a Spring and the Egg with Legs leading families on an adventure with workshops to create Seuss-style rhymes along the way.

Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes on the big screen
Monday 17th April, 11am, Hyde Park Picture House
All ages, best suited to ages 7 and under
£8 per seat – babies on knees are FREE
You might have seen in on TV over Christmas, but you haven’t seen it on the big screen! Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes have been turned into animations by the people who brought you The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom, and they’re just wonderful. To make this super rare chance to watch Revolting Rhymes at the cinema even more special, Boomchikkaboom will have extra fun activities for little ones before the screening, plus a photo booth and mid movie treat. What better way to spend a revoltingly brilliant Easter holiday!

Films based on books they love
16-17 April, Hyde Park Picture House
£3 kids, £5 adults, £10 family of 4
Great books make great films, and we’ve got a whole library to choose from at Reel Kids at Hyde Park Picture House. Tickets are £3 for kids, or £10 for up to two adults and two children. Beat THAT, multiplex! We’re bringing back two of the biggest family hits of 2016: The BFG based on Roald Dahl’s gloriumptious book, and beautiful live action remake of The Jungle Book, based on Rudyard Kipling’s original book from way back in 1894.

Fun fact: did you know that The Princess Bride is 30 years old this year, AND it’s based on a book?? “Inconceivable!” Bring the kids to this cult classic anniversary screening on Monday 17 April for just £3 for kids or £10 for the family (two adults and two children).
