FAQs

What happens once I register?

The event will be hosted by the online platform Crowdcast. We have limited interactive places for this event, but if you are lucky enough to obtain an interactive place you will be emailed by one of The Children’s Bookshow team with confirmation. You will be contacted within three working days of submitting the form.

A week before the event you will be sent a Crowdcast link to the event and a password.

Oh no! I haven’t managed to get an interactive place! What can I do?

Don’t worry. You can watch the live event on YouTube. The only difference between Crowdcast and YouTube is that teachers are unable to comment/ask questions on YouTube. The experience for children will be enjoyable on both platforms.

Can I share my Crowdcast link and password?

No. We have limited places on Crowdcast and need to be able to keep an accurate tally of places allocated. Please do not share the Crowdcast link and password with parents or people outside of school.

Can I use my Crowdcast link on several different devices?

No. The interactive Crowdcast link you receive can be used on one device only. The interactive link enables you to ask questions and comment in the chat function.

I have more than one class who would like to see this event, but I’ve only been allocated one interactive place. What can I do?
