The ceremony and after party will be held at the Roundhouse, London, on Sunday 23rd November 2014.

“We are really excited about our partnership with BAFTA, which is one we see growing over the coming years,” commented Rena Nathanson at Bananagrams. “The Children’s Awards celebrate the very best in media and entertainment for young people in Britain and we are thrilled to be associated with such an esteemed event, which applauds some of the country’s most creative talent.

“The After Party is going to be an energetic and entertaining affair, which sits perfectly with Bananagrams. This is the chance for guests to unwind, let their hair down and really have some bananatastic fun. Our team is working hard to create the perfect environment for plenty of monkeying around, plus we’ll have a specially-branded Booth Nation photo-shoot zone complete with props and games for guests to create crazy selfie-memories of the night.”

Emma Bayhe, BAFTA’s director of Awards, added: “We are delighted to be working with Bananagrams on this exciting new partnership for the British Academy Children’s Awards After Party and look forward to them bring their personality to the event and helping us celebrate the best in Children’s media this coming November.”

Bnanagrams has sold more than 6m worldwide and has an array of celebrity fans including the cast of Downton Abbey and Dame Judi Dench, who recently penned the foreword to the new Collins Little Book of Bananagrams. The Bananagrams Challenge, the UK’s first official Bananagrams primary school competition, takes place in the New Year.
