Friday, October 18, 2019 - 12:40

London Literature Festival is back, taking over Southbank Centre for a 13th year with talks, discussions, conversations and more. And running through the heart of 2019’s events programme is a celebration of folk and fairy tales.

Across the eleven day festival, these traditional stories will be showcased and explored through performances – such as that of the Slavic tale of Baba Yaga – and workshops, and reimagined for a modern audience with the help of leading authors including Daisy Johnson and Sharlene Teo.

But which of the many characters of these traditional stories do you most closely relate to? Are you as curious and fearless as Goldilocks, or as antagonistic and led by your stomach as The Big Bad Wolf? Well, thanks to our interactive quiz, you need wonder no longer.

Southbank Centre’s London Literature Festival runs until 27 October, with daily events, talks, discussions, performances and workshops.
