Balingup Telling Tales is a children’s Story Telling Festival held over the middle weekend of the July school holidays.
Following on from the success of the first Telling Tales in Balingup in 2010 the event has gone from strength to strength, and each year has seen children enjoy and benefit from an affordable and creative weekend.
Many published WA authors and illustrators present interactive workshops throughout the weekend. Multiple sessions on offer at any given time allow you to select a session which best suits you and your children. Children may also be able to learn the art of bookbinding and decorating and take home their very own book.
The parade is a real hit with the children, who are able to ‘dress up’ as their favourite story character and join in the fun. The parade takes place on Saturday from 12.30pm – 1.30pm.
Adults may, of course, accompany the children to the workshops, and also enjoy a coffee in the cafés or browse the many interesting retail outlets. Balingup is renowned for its fabulous events and is sure to host a weekend worth attending.
The event is designed for school-aged children 4yrs – 14yrs.
