Nicola O’Byrne & Ben Mantle to lead ‘Storytime Sunday’ at Doodle Bar


Doodle Bright 3 new

The Bright Group and The Doodle Bar, both promoters and champions of creativity, art and discussion, are collaborating to present Storytime Sundays for children at The Doodle Bar, starting on Sunday 14th December, 10am – 12pm.

Waterstones Award Winning artist Nicola O’Byrne will be talking to her young readers and promoting her humorous & cleverly illustrated ‘Open Very Carefully’ (Nosy Crow), as well as leading a variety of creative activities throughout the morning. So close to Christmas, children and parents will also have the exciting opportunity to interact and invent their own stories alongside Bright Star, Ben Mantle who will be promoting his hilariously festive book ‘Rudey’s Windy Christmas’ (Harper Collins). Signed copies of books will be available to buy on the day.

With ten years of industry experience and a track-record of creating award-winning content, Bright Group understands that bringing a book to print is only the first step towards critical and commercial success. With our ever-expanding source of inspirational material and incredible new talent at our fingertips, Bright’s deep passion and complete dedication to children’s books and literature also goes beyond the book sales & reviews. We actively encourage our creatives to engage with their key audiences, recognising that driving discoverability of an artist’s work leads to a broader readership and builds the foundations of success.

 Storytime Sundays will hopefully be the start of a successful monthly collaboration between Bright and The Doodle Bar, with more opportunities for the public to creatively interact with their favourite story-tellers and Creatives to promote, share and celebrate their incredible talents.

Tickets are £5, booking is essential as places are limited  –
