You’re going to write the best ever Doctor Who story – and we’re all going to perform it. Don’t plan anything. Don’t bring anything. We’re doing it all, from finding ideas to casting your parents as the monsters. You’ll have to think fast, think brilliantly – and then it’s all about writing in a group with me interrupting you at all the good bits.

Hello. I’m William Gallagher, and I write Doctor Who radio dramas – or rather I did! Today you’re the writer and I’m the producer. Come and meet your fellow writers because we’ve got a Doctor Who play to put on and a planet to save!

Children need to be accompanied at BookFest events, so whilst adults don't need to buy tickets for workshops they do need to stay in the building. It can be a fantastic experience to see what imaginative ideas your child comes up with in these brilliant sessions!


Workshops are a wonderful way of spending time being creative together - but we do ask that adults buy tickets if they intend to take part, use materials and sit with their children. One ticket per participant please! Workshops classrooms are not suitable for children under 5.
