Coventry Cathedral working with Kenilworth Books

How to Train Your Dragon creator, Cressida Cowell, comes to Coventry!

Coventry Cathedral,

Tuesday 17th September, 6.00pm

On 17th September Coventry Cathedral will be hosting an event with independent bookshop, Kenilworth Books, to bring author and illustrator, Cressida Cowell to Coventry. The event will be ticketed, with ticket options that include a signed, first edition book. Tickets are available from TicketSource. Books will be for sale at the event too.

Cressida will be doing an event in the Cathedral and talking about her new series of books for children, The Wizards of Once.  The latest in the series, Knock Three Times will be published on 19th September, so fans of Cressida Cowell’s work can buy copies of the new book a few days early in Coventry!

At the event, Cressida Cowell will talk about how she created her magical world of wizards, dragons, warriors and sprites! The event will use a screen projection of Cressida’s illustrations and will include elements of film clips too.


£15 (which includes a signed first edition book)

£5 entry only

There will be other books by Cressida Cowell also available to buy at the event.  

This page was set up by Kenilworth Books, on behalf of Coventry Cathedral, solely for the purposes of organising the event to bring author and UK Children's Laureate Cressida Cowell to Coventry Cathedral. Kenilworth Books will be supplying books for the event, and will also be supporting the small team at the Cathedral with the event's publicity. The account also serves the purpose of keeping Kenilworth Books informed of how many books will be required. All money from ticket sales will go to Coventry Cathedral. Kenilworth Books will be paid only for supplying books.
