Jackanory at 50 with the Children's Media Foundation

Sunday 13th December 2015 3:30pm - 6pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Join the Children’s Media Foundation as they celebrate fifty years since the launch of the iconic storytelling series Jackanory, the much-loved legend of BBC Children’s television. Having featured a cavalcade of famous actors and illustrators and told countless adored stories over its 30 year run--most of them adapted from published books by some of the most famous authors in children’s literature--Jackanory holds a special place in many of our hearts.


This special event at Foyles brings together Jackanory storytellers David Wood and Hannah Gordon, with illustrator Paul Birkbeck and Jackanory director Jeremy Swan - all with tales to tell about the behind-the-scenes magic and mayhem.  Hosted by Matt Brown, TV and radio presenter and author of the Compton Valence children’s book series, with clips from the show and some special guest messages and appearances, Jackanory at 50 will provide an illuminating and nostalgic pre-Christmas afternoon’s entertainment.


Doors open at 3pm for a 3:30pm start, and your ticket includes a post-event reception from 5pm-6pm.

Venue: The Auditorium, Level 6

Tickets: £10 per person via the Children’s Media Foundation.
