The storytelling and craft event is now FULLY BOOKED. Tickets are still available for the film screening.

Come and celebrate Maurice Sendak’s amazing book, with a film screening of Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are (PG), followed by a special storytelling and craft event. Imaginatively adapted, Where the Wild Things Are follows the adventures of Max, a spirited young boy who is sent to his room after rebelling against his mother. Max's imagination is free to roam as he sets sail for the land of the Wild Things, where mischief reigns and Max rules.

Following the film screening at HOME, young fans and parents are invited to a lively storytelling and craft event with Manchester Literature Festival, suitable for ages 3+. The workshop is free, but booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
