Benji Davies Reads

Until Mon 31 Aug

During lockdown, Benji Davies and family have produced #BenjiDaviesReads, a new YouTube channel where Benji reads his picture books for a stay-at-home storytime during the Covid-19 crisis and as a resource for schools. The collection of readings include some creative tips for things to make and draw inspired by his illustrations. Here he reads Grandad’s Island and shows you how to make a colourful bird.

Artillery is delighted to welcome Benji Davies again to be part of their Same Sky programme. In 2019, Benji joined us at Walthamstow Garden Party for the launch of Artillery's London Borough of Culture project, Grandad’s Island: From Page to Pavement. It was the start of creative projects happening across the borough inspired by his award winning picture book: dance... a sound symphony... a story den... procession. Benji joined us for book readings and more in Lloyd Park and Langthorne Park, in Higham Hill library and in Downsell Primary School.
