The storytelling scavenger hunt is set to take place on Saturday March 6 at 2pm.

Cllr Kevin Robinson, cabinet member for business, culture and tourism, said: “I am delighted that we can deliver this event to families in Southend, bringing the splendour of reading into our residents’ homes and hearts.
“World Book Day is a day that celebrates the power of books to so many children and adults worldwide, inspiring imagination and creativity. Therefore, I encourage families with children of all ages to book your ticket and get involved in this wonderful opportunity. I recommend parents give permission to allow the kids to turn the house upside down with all the activities.”
Once you have booked your ticket you will receive a Zoom meeting link, ID and passcode in your confirmation e-mail. Also, children must be accompanied by an adult, but do not need to be present on screen.
