Stamp Your Passports at Festival Learning Destinations

We’re helping our good friends at Essex Children’s University to provide 5-14 year olds with exciting learning experiences outside school. Once issued with a Passport to Learning, ‘CU Learners’ collect stamps and attend a special Graduation Ceremony. All Essex Book Festival YOUNG ESSEX events are CU Learning Destinations – bring your passport, get it stamped, and enjoy your learning journey! Find out how to get your very own Passport to Learningat essexchildrensuniversity.co.uk
