The last few days were ram packed full of creative celebrations of libraries and the arts.
The Fabula Festival filled Redbridge Central Library in Clements Road, Ilford, with music, poetry, crafts, theatre and many more activities for anyone of any age who fancied going along.
Award winning poet, Roger McGough, opened the festival on Friday night as part of his show, As Far as I Know, which is currently touring the UK and he was followed by a lively ABBA tribute night.
Saturday saw the Kids Take Over with a fun filled day of events including live drawing, story telling, music and movement with the author and illustrator of popular children’s books such as Handa’s Surprise, Handa’s Hen and Boo Boo Baby and the Giraffe.
Fabula wraps up this evening with a mellow Monday open mic poetry night from 6pm at Redbridge Central Library.
