On Thursday 28 May at 10am, you can hear Lyn Gardner talk all about her best-selling Olivia series – an event that’s bound to appeal to any aspiring performer.

Later on in the day, Helen Peters, author of The Secret Hen House Theatre and The Farm Beneath the Water will be speaking on Thursday 28 May at 2.30pm.
