Online PR News – 20-January-2012 – – The Imagine Festival, sponsored by online book retailer the Book People, is currently having the final touches put to it before the doors open at the Southbank Centre in London on February 11th. The festival aims to encourage children of all ages to think creatively and is packed with activities and events.

Running from 11th – 26th February, the Imagine Festival is said to be one of the best children’s events of the year. The festival is now in its 11th year, having been run since 2001, and is set to be at its biggest and best in 2012. The list of events contains something for everyone, from musical and dance performances, through to poetry and fiction readings from some the best children's authors in the world.

The festival is designed to encourage children to be creative, so there will be chances for children to make their own works of art, write their own fiction, and take part in dance and music events and workshops. With workshops covering all of these topics and more and opportunities to watch funny and entertaining acts, this festival is great for children and young people of all ages.

Children and parents can look forward to story-telling from books by Jacqueline Wilson, Cathy Cassidy, MacKenzie Crook and Francesca Simon, as well as a premiere of The Trial of Dennis the Menace musical. There will even be opera for babies, orchestral reproductions of The Jungle Book and Carnival of the Animals, and Robert Winston will be demonstrating some thrilling activities, included in his book Science Experiments.

“The Imagine Festival is meant to inspire children to become more creative in every aspect of their lives, and it also aims to introduce them to things they would not normally be interested in,” said Donna Stevenson of the Book People.

“For example, a lot of children that attend the Imagine Festival go home with a new interest in poetry or dance, and this can help to lead them to new hobbies and even, in some cases, to their future careers,” she added.

Babies and children's story books can be bought online from the Book People.
