Jacqueline Wilson’s Wonderful World, a BBC Concert with BSL interpretation

Posted in News

Part of BBC Symphony Orchestra & Chorus 2021-22 Season

“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.

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!

This performance is recommended for children aged 8+.

This performance will be BSL-interpreted. To book seats with a view of the BSL interpreter, email tickets@barbican.org.uk or call our access line on 0203 855 4745 (Mon–Fri 1–4pm).

The performance is being filmed by the BBC for future broadcast and audience members may be seen on screen.”
