Ilustratour is the principal Illustration Festival in Spain and after 7 years in Valladolid will be moving to Madrid for its 8th edition. The British Council has been a regular partner of the festival since its foundation.

The festival has become a “must” for illustration lovers from all over Spain and abroad. Each year over 600 illustrators and around 100 publishers and agents are joined by thousands of visitors of all ages with the common goal of experiencing and enjoying illustration.

The festival programme includes workshops, conferences, competitions, professional encounters, exhibitions, talks given by authors, interviews, dialogues, debates, case studies, project showcases, coffees, meetings, prizes, late-night events, drama and dance.

This year’s British participants are the eminent children’s illustrator Anthony Browne, emerging talent William Grill and Mark Mill, founder of the prestigious Plum Pudding illustration agency.
