The best-selling children’s author Jacqueline Wilson reads from her hugely popular books in a multimedia orchestral adventure through the imagination.
Dame Jacqueline Wilson’s books have inspired generations of children for 30 years. The renowned author joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra for a family concert that will carry you into the worlds of some of her favourite characters – the fearless Tracy Beaker, the determined Hetty Feather and many more.
Wilson believes anything can tell a story – music included. This multimedia concert will expand the imagination with miraculous music by composers past and present. Expect sorcery, charm, rhythmic drive and hypnotic sounds from the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and of course, the theme from CBBC’s beloved The Story of Tracy Beaker.
Produced by the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
These performances are being filmed by the BBC for future broadcast and audience members may be seen on screen.
