Saturday Night Dinner & Mass Book Launch


It’s party time!

The party may look a little different, but it’s still a must for anyone attending the conference.

This year’s party is taking place at the Hyatt Hotel, only a short distance from the main conference venue.

Arrive at 6.30pm for a welcome drink (cash bar thereafter) and the opportunity to network with fellow SCBWI members, the conference faculty and guests from the children’s book world.

At 7.30pm we’ll sit down to a delicious three course meal. It will then be a time to celebrate as we present the Crystal Kite award and applaud the latest crop of SCBWI books during the Mass Book Launch.

And of course, we haven’t forgotten the cake, which will be another showstopping creation!

Dressing up for the party is now very much a thing, and this year’s theme is All Things Manchester. With such a wide theme anything goes, whether it’s a small nod or a full-blown costume! However, please don’t feel you have to look silly to come – smart evening wear is a very acceptable alternative.


Ticket includes welcome drink and three course meal. (Offered to attendees at a highly discounted rate, subsidized by SCBWI).


Non-conference attendees and plus ones now open – please use a different email address to your own booking one when booking for a plus one.
