One of the world’s greatest children’s authors is coming to Hertford.
Dame Jacqueline Wilson will be with us, launching Hertford Children's Book Festival 2016 with a very special event.

The Gala will commence with a short performance from much loved poet and musician John Hegley. 
This will be followed by a 7 minute film featuring award-winning illustrator Nick Sharratt who will teach the audience how to draw one of Jacqueline Wilson’s characters.

Jacqueline Wilson, former Children’s Laureate, has written over 100 novels for children and 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of her perennially popular character Tracy Beaker.
