Deptford Literature Festival: Families event
Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola ‘Look Up!’

Join author and illustrator Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola for an out-of-this-world event about their debut picture book 'Look Up'!

Find out all about Rocket, a science-mad chatterbox who is going to be the greatest astronaut, star-catcher, space-traveller that has ever lived…she just needs to get everyone around her to look up from their phones and up at the stars! So, get ready to look up from your screens and enjoy a lively event full of storytelling, fun facts and top drawing tips from this exciting debut duo.

Age guidance: 3+
Please note that parents, guardians or carers must stay with their children during this event. When booking a ticket, you only need to book one ticket per child (i.e. you don’t need to book a ticket for yourself and your child).

This event is part of Round Table Books’ day of family activities at Deptford Literature Festival, curated for our younger festival goers and their parents, carers and guardians. Round Table Books will be selling books by featured authors and more at the festival in Deptford Lounge Library throughout the day.

Free but ticketed, what we’d like you to know
This event works on a first come, first served basis. Any ticket uncollected 5 mins prior to the start time may be subject to reallocation. If you’ve booked a ticket and know in advance of the event day that you can no longer attend, please let us know so we can offer your ticket to someone else.
