Live reading and musical performance by VV Brown and Friends.

The performance will take place in the Sky Room, audience members are invited to bring a picnic blanket or cushions to use when seated on the floor.
Join VV Brown for this special reading and performance of her enchanting and inspiring book 'Lily and the Magic Comb'. Written by VV and illustrated by Kate Hazell the book is an adventurous journey of discovery where the lead character transports herself to anywhere she wants to go using her imagination and her magical comb. With colourful eye popping illustrations and charming rhyming the book seeks to inspire and represent a space of children who are often not represented in children's literature.
