Children's book hunt in Lockmeadow Entertainment Centre

The Book Bugs children’s book hunt is a fun and free activity for all primary school aged children to join in with during Maidstone LitFest week.

Brand new children’s books, sponsored by local businesses and authors, are being hidden inside Lockmeadow Entertainment Centre ready to be hunted down by eagle-eyed little people.

Snap a pic with your book and upload it to the dedicated Facebook group for your chance to win an amazing craft activity hamper!

Megan from Book Bugs, who has been running the non-profit book hunt initiative in Bearsted for the past three years is a local pre-school teacher and is passionate about children developing early reading skills. Sharing stories and nurturing a love of books opens up a whole world of creative and academic possibilities.

Huge thanks go out to all local sponsors and volunteers that have made this project possible. If you are interested in making a last minute donation, or getting involved next year please message

There are a limited number of books available and they will be dotted around Lockmeadow on Sunday 8 October. Please take only one book per child to give as many families as possible the chance to find their own.

Happy Hunting!
