FREE author visit to your UK school!

08 February 2022 Share


Authors of the Football School series, Alex Bellos and Ben Lyttleton, will be giving FREE school talks across the UK in 2022 to inspire children through reading and sport.

The books use football to get children aged 7-13 reading and learning through football. They've written 11 books so far, which have become increasingly popular amongst KS2 children. 

Alex and Ben are happy to travel anywhere in the UK, and would not charge a fee. Having visited 13 primary schools last year as part of an impromptu Christmas tour, which received such a positive reaction, they felt that children have been starved of author visits during the pandemic and deserved to continue benefitting from the incredible, inspiring atmosphere that these visits provide. 

With the Women's Euros in July and the World Cup in November, 2022 is a brilliant year for football-related learning. 

If you're interested in taking Alex and Ben up on their offer, please get in touch with Alex at alexanderbellos@gmail.com.
