The Festival is run by and for the community through a partnership between Station Hall Herne Hill, CWISL, and Tales on Moon Lane Bookshop. It is supported by the wider Station Hall and Herne Hill Forum teams, and an army of local volunteers, schools and businesses who roll up their sleeves together to make amazing things happen!  


The following fantastic funders have made the festival possible:


  • 2019: The Mayor’s Office, Good Growth Fund

  • 2020: Thames Water Relief Fund, Southwark Council

  • 2022: 2022: The Arts Council, The Herne Hill Forum


The Herne Hill Kids’ Lit Fest is an essential element in the campaign to raise funds to make Station Hall fully accessible. By supporting the Festival, you help to prove the potential of Station Hall to deliver far-reaching, positive social impact, and in doing so support our bid to fund full accessibility works at Station Hall.
