Event guidelines for venues

Children’s Books Ireland has twenty-five years of experience in programming and running events for children and adults with an interest in children’s books.

Over the years we have gathered feedback from authors, illustrators, librarians, teachers, publishers, booksellers, venue staff, programmers, parents and guardians and, most importantly, from children across the island, telling us what does and doesn’t work when it comes to staging events and activities for different age groups.

Using this information and experience as a starting point, we have suggested a few simple guidelines to help ensure your event runs smoothly. These guidelines will apply to live, digital and hybrid events.

Further guidance for digital events specifically can be found within the Fees and Conditions Guidelines for Digital Events with Children document detailed at the end of this page. With any in-person or live event all public health guidelines must be considered.

Children’s Books Ireland works with authors, illustrators, poets, storytellers and facilitators who make work for children and young people, and for the purposes of this document we will refer to ‘the artist’ to include all of these.
