Salford Literacy Trail

Explore your city and discover new adventures through the power of stories and reading. The Salford Literacy Trail is a stunning collaboration between the National Literacy Trust and the Bupa Foundation to create 20 Book Bench sculptures in the heart of Salford. Running from Thursday 14 July to Friday 9 September, these eye-catching, unmissable benches have been designed by local artists working together with Salford schools. Each one uniquely captures how children feel about the books and stories that have inspired them and helped them to get in touch with their emotions. It’s an opportunity for families to discover the joys and benefits of reading by exploring the trail and taking part in a programme of activities over 10 weeks in the summer.
