We are delighted to have Cas to open our Street Fair this year and to judge the Children’s Fancy Dress.

Cas Lester used to make children’s television programmes for CBBC children’s drama like JACKANORY, KERCHING, BIG KIDS and THE STORY OF TRACY BEAKER. But then CBBC moved to Manchester and Cas didn’t! She couldn’t, because her family are happily settled and rooted in Oxfordshire. So now Cas is writing books for children instead. Which is great because it means she can spend more time with her four children, and get to do lots of school visits and workshops, which she loves. Cas is Patron of Reading at Edward Field School in Oxon.
