Norman Lindsay Festival of Children's Literature

Home > Sydney > Festivals | Fun for Children
On the weekend of March 20-21, the Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum will be hosting the Norman Lindsay Festival of Children's Literature.

The action will be taking place on Norman Lindsay's former property, which can be found in the Blue Mountains community of Faulconbridge. Now managed by the National Trust, it was where he produced The Magic Pudding. Incidentally, it is also where most of the filming took place for Sirens, the film based on the famous writer-artist's libertine lifestyle.

On both days of the program, a septet of authors and illustrators will be appearing: Tristan Bancks, Anne Spudvilas, Aaron Blabey, Stephen Measday, Freya Blackwood, Emily Rodda and Debra Oswald. During their talks and workshops, they'll explain all about writing and illustrating for children, before signing autographs. There'll also be stalls, music, guided bushwalks and a portable Dymocks bookshop to enjoy.

While you're there, take the time to walk around Lindsay's inspiring 20 hectare estate. It contains his former residence and studio, as well as an enchanting garden, whose sculptures and fountains perfectly complement the surrounding bush.

The first presentation will begin at 10.30am and the last at 3.15pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for concession, $10 for children and $40 for families, while weekend passes are $25, 20, $15 and $65 respectively. A free shuttle bus will be operating from Springwood station.
