World Book Day 2023: Children from Newcastle schools celebrate the day

The annual charity event allows children to celebrate books and reading.

World Book Day 2023 took place on Wednesday, March 2, and children across the country celebrated in schools, with some dressing up as their favourite fictional characters from books.

The annual charity event which has taken place since 1998, gives children the opportunity to celebrate their favourite books and reading, while vouchers for new books are usually given to the children to spend on new books.

Here are children from Newcastle schools celebrating World Book Day.
