2020 AGM banner including image of Joseph Coelho, Sophie Collins and English 4-11 Picture Book awards.

The EA team is working hard to keep our staff, colleagues, and communities safe. Therefore we've decided to limit the risk caused by travelling and gathering in large groups by moving our Awards Ceremony and AGM to Wednesday, 25 November 2020. We'll be in the same beautiful location, with the same fantastic events, including a keynote speech from poet and playwright Joseph Coelho.
We look forward to seeing you there and (hopefully) marking the end of this difficult and challenging time. Please book your place now here.
