World Book Day Celebrations at New Wimbledon Theatre

Dermot O'Leary with young fans holding the book Toto

On the 6th March 2019 we hosted events with Dermot O’Leary & Nick East, Tom Fletcher and Frank Cottrell-Boyce at New Wimbledon Theatre.

Over the course of the day we welcomed over 2500 children into the theatre. Every child that attended went home with a book (or two!).

Dermot O’Leary and illustrator Nick East came to share the last addition to the Toto the Ninja Cat series, Toto the Ninja Cat and the Incredible Cheese Heist. Tom Fletcher returned to Wimbledon BookFest with his book The Creakers, the audience were even treated to some ‘creaker’ based songs. Finally we were joined by World Book Day Author, Frank Cottrell-Boyce, who used the power of story telling to encapsulate the whole theatre. We didn’t want it to end!
