A fantastic family day at the Foundling Museum celebrating Jacqueline Wilson’s brilliant sequel to historical children’s novel Hetty Feather, about a girl who grew up in the Foundling Hospital. Sapphire Battersea follows Hetty’s journey as she leaves the Foundling Hospital at fourteen. Children can meet Sapphire Battersea, listen to live readings, take part in drop-in craft workshops, dress up in costumes and enter a competition to win a copy of Sapphire Battersea signed by Jacqueline Wilson and illustrator Nick Sharratt.

In an exclusive ticketed event Jacqueline Wilson will give a talk for children and sign copies of Sapphire Battersea. Click here for more information.
