Annual Wisbech Reading Festival goes online as literacy project launches two poetry competitions

A successful campaign aimed at improving literacy skills among children and adults in Wisbech is set to hold its sixth annual Summer Reading Festival - but this year there's a difference.

Last year the festival was held over five days in July with nearly 600 Year 1 children from the 17 local schools enjoying a variety of activities related to literacy, including meeting an author, exploring books in Wisbech library, music and word games in the Castle grounds and storytelling toether with related activities at the Wisbech musuem.
