St Francis pupils meet bestselling children’s author David Baddiel!

At St Francis we are passionate about encouraging our pupils to develop a love of reading and are proud supporters of the Marlborough Literature Festival, now celebrating its 10th year.

As sponsors of David Baddiel ‘The Taylor Turbochaser’ on Sunday 29th September at the Marlborough College Memorial Hall, we took a group of eighteen of our book-loving pupils to see David talk about his experience as a bestselling children’s author.

As part of the talk, David asked the children in the audience questions inspired by his novels, such as ‘Who would be your ideal celebrity parents?’, which resulted in some very amusing answers!

The children were also given the opportunity to ask David questions and have their books signed by him.
