Today marks World Book Day.

We know celebrations may not be the same this year, but we still want to help celebrate your children’s love of reading even during lockdown.

The annual celebration of reading and writing usually sees children of all ages across Bucks going to school dressed up as witches, wizards, pirates and princesses and other literary characters.

This year, most children will not go back to school until March 8, but we know that won’t stop those who are still at home from taking part in the fun.

If your child is dressing up for World Book Day, we would love to see pictures of their costume.


We will be printing some of our favourite pictures in next week's Bucks Free Press and updating an online gallery throughout the day. 

Send your pictures via the form below or email your pictures to with your child's name, their age, the name of their school and the character/s they are dressed up as. You can also send us a message on Facebook.
