Leicester City Readathon

We’ve joined forces twice in 2018 and 2019 with the Leicester-wide reading initiative Whatever it Takes to unleash the power of our Readathon on schools for one glorious fortnight.

The most recent Leicester Readathon took place from 30 September – 11 October 2019, building a buzz about books and the power of stories by asking pupils to read what they love, with events from special guest authors and illustrators including Rob Biddulph, Greg James, Chris Smith and Steve Skidmore, plus a citywide Drop Everything and Read on the last day that brought together community groups and businesses too.

Leicester schools had this fantastic hints and tips booklet to help their Readathon go with a swing!
