Are You Sitting Comfortably? (11.00-12.00)

Join Leigh Hodgkinson for stories, giant drawings and fun crafts, with some storytelling in between. Leigh writes and illustrates picture books for children. Her books have been translated into oodles of different languages around the world and have even won some awards too. She is art director and co-creator of an inventive new animated show called “Olobob Top” for CBeebies. Leigh likes swimming, buttons and cheese, but she’s not so keen on slugs, tidying or parking.
