For the first time ever in the UK, best-selling children’s superstar authors, David Walliams and Jeff Kinney will be sharing a stage on 1st December for a LIVE Christmas spectacular event at Indigo at the O2 in London.
Personally my 10 year old son Diego and I cannot wait to get the Kids’ Club down to the O2 to see this event. Diego and Amelie have both read all books by David Walliams and Jeff Kinney and are very excited at the opportunity to meet their favourite authors as well as ask them their burning questions.
It will be a great event to kick off the Christmas festivities.
The evening, organised by both authors’ publishers HarperCollins Children’s Books and Penguin Live, is expected to be filled with laugher, fun and festive treats, plus a chance for the audience to ask David and Jeff questions. This event is a must for all book worms and comedy fans!
The authors will also present their brand new books The Midnight Gang and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down.
Date: Thursday 1st December 2016
Venue: Indigo @ O2, North Greenwich, London
