Discover Story's Spring Programme is packed with booky goodness.

Discover Story Centre - London. Where stories come alive!
The Discover Story Centre in Stratford, London, was a brilliant place to visit when we dropped in last summer on a sweltering hot day with a few book blogging folk. 

This fabulous venue has now released details of their Spring Events programme, and it's a doozy. 

For starters, there's the launch of our new interactive family exhibition Secret Agents, for children ages 6+, with a special visit from Ruby Redfort and Clarice Bean author, Lauren Child (15 Feb).

There's a February Half Term jam packed with story adventures as well as visits from author/illustrators Catalina Echeverri (Lion and Mouse) and Stephanie Blake (Poo Bum)

And don't miss out on The Big Write – Stories Remixed (6 – 16 March) returns with a spectacular line up of authors, illustrators, visual artists, pop stars and comic makers for all ages, including Korky Paul (Winnie the Witch), Cerrie Burnell (CBeebies), John Hegley (I am a Poetato), Axel Scheffler (The Gruffalo), Jamila Gavin (Coram Boy), Alex T Smith (Claude) and Catherine Bennett Live.

This season also includes the 3rd annual London Children’s Book Swap, 15 Feb, in which children and their families can bring their old books to one of 18 family friendly cultural venues across London and swap them for a different read, for free. Venues include, Discover Children’s Story Centre, Southbank Centre, Rich Mix, Museum of London, Unicorn Theatre and the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education.
