The Big Read is a Wild in Art creative education event brought to you by presenting partners The Schools of King Edward VI and Wesleyan, in association with the National Literacy Trust and Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.

The Event is Free and all are welcome no prior booking needed.

Schools and community groups have decorated benches shaped as open books with designs inspired by their favourite novels, comics, poems and prose. The decorated Book Benches are displayed around the region and are complemented by a programme of activities in venues to spark everybody’s interest in reading and writing.

A one-off – The Big Read Book Bench trail takes place from 16 July until 13 September 2016. 

Most are wheelchair friendly – please see for details on each venue
