Welcome to the first ever Beyond the Page literary festival taking place 8-23 July 2017 at Libraries across Wellington and the Hutt Valley region. Local children and youth are invited to journey through different aspects of storytelling — creating experiences for them to immerse themselves in the literary world and express their creativity.

Join one of the over 113 festival events and activities that create local spaces for innovation, and encourage exploration of participants’ own stories and help them embrace new ideas along the way.
