On Wednesday 6th March, Liverpool born author and storyteller Cat Weatherill was guest of honour at Bromsgrove Pre-Preparatory School, as part of their World Book Day celebrations.
The children were enthralled by Cat’s magical stories and activities. She also brought in wonderful musical instruments to accompany the stories and bring them alive.
Cat Weatherill studied Drama at University and then became an actress, appearing on television in programmes such as Chucklevision and Casualty. She then spent a few years as a professional singer. In 1999, she discovered storytelling and now travels all over the world, telling tales for adults, as well as children. She has performed in Africa, India, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Russia and across Europe.
Mrs Clare Cattell, Head of Year 1 said “we were delighted to welcome Cat Weatherill to School – the children loved hearing her wonderful stories and dressed up as their favourite characters. World Book Day is a charity whose aim is to give every child a book of their own. It is also a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and, most importantly, reading”.
