Jacqueline Wilson a sell-out success!

Story posted on

Multi-million selling author and former Children’s Laureate, Dame Jacqueline Wilson performed to a completely packed-out crowd at the Merlin Theatre on Sunday 28th April.

Jacqueline’s event was hosted by Winstone’s Hunting Raven Books, who were thrilled to be able to welcome the author to Frome to launch her latest book Dancing the Charleston.

Hunting Raven manager Tina Gaisford-Waller said, “We couldn’t quite believe our luck when Jacqueline agreed to an event with us. We knew it would be popular, but we sold out faster than we could ever have anticipated.

“Jacqueline was wonderful; warm, friendly, and completely inspiring. Her young audience was hanging off her every word.

“As a special surprise for Jacqueline, we arranged for some dancers from Frome’s TriArt Dance Academy to perform a demonstration of the Charleston to kick the event off. Jacqueline was blown away by their talent and really touched that we had gone the extra mile for her and her fans.”

“Due to arthritis, Jacqueline isn’t always able to sign at events. But she made an exception for this one and patiently worked through an hour-and-a-half signing queue, taking the time to talk to every child. She was nothing short of a star!”
