The best-selling children’s author reads from her books in a multimedia orchestral adventure through the imagination, with special guests including actor Dani Harmer (AKA Tracy Beaker herself).

Joining Wilson as special guests are Dani Harmer (Tracy Beaker), Emma Maggie Davies (Jess Beaker), Isabel Clifton (Hetty Feather) and Chloe Lea (Katy Carr). This multimedia concert will expand the imagination with miraculous music by composers past and present, not forgetting the iconic Tracy Beaker theme – newly arranged for orchestra.

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.
