If you are local to Brentwood, you will know that the Brentwood Art Trail has been on since 15th June, and will be running up until 30th June.

One of our authors and illustrators, David O’Connell, has been exhibiting his artwork in the window of Chicken and Frog Bookshop in Ongar Road. If you haven’t seen it yet, you still have a few more days! The super exciting news is that there will be various prints to give away to children who attend David’s writing and illustration workshop on 29th July.


In addition to the prints, we also have dictionaries (thanks to the Breakfast Brentwood Rotary), a range of fabulous books kindly donated by Bloomsbury and, as I have blogged previously, a books donated due to the hard work of Gerry Bender.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of these great gifts is a) purchase a ticket and attend an event and b) pick a lucky number from the free raffle draw that will take place at each event!*

*David’s prints will only be available at David’s workshop.
