We’re proud to be taking part in the Summer Derby Book Festival. 

On Thursday 30 May we will be hosting FREE children’s live book reading sessions from 11am – 4pm on Level 2 outside H&M in our themed reading area.  Booking is advised as places are limited.   

Your child can enjoy listening to a minimum of two books including:

* The Tiger Who Came To Tea

* Little Bear’s Picnic

* Teddy Bear’s Picnic

* Elmer

* Cat In The Hat

* The Gruffalo

On the day, we would be grateful to receive (optional) charity contributions for our 2024 charity partner, Umbrella.   

Derbion will also be a drop-off location for Derby Book Festival’s Children’s Book Appeal where locals will be able to donate their pre-loved children’s books. The initiative aims to spread a love of books and encourage a new generation of Derby readers.  Books will be able to be donated at our Customer Service desk, located on level 1 outside Boots and at Derby City Labs, which is located on Level 2 .
