Read session report

Since author Dame Jacqueline Wilson first created the irrepressible Tracy Beaker 30 years ago, the character has become one of the most loved and enduring children’s cultural icons. Spanning six books, a musical, and more than 150 television episodes over the last two decades, the imaginative, rule-breaking ten-year-old living in care has spawned a full-blown franchise, propelled by her vivid portrayal on screen by Dani Harmer.

Following the record-breaking launch this year of the latest CBBC series ‘My Mum Tracy Beaker’, which drew 2.1 million iPlayer streams in the first three days of release, Jacqueline and Dani will come together on Wednesday 7th July to lift the lid on their unique creative relationship…exploring how author and actor have inspired each other’s work, helped an icon grow, and now built generations of loyal Tracy fans.
