Expect celebrities including: Rupert Everett (reading from Oscar Wilde) as well as fellow actors Warwick Davies,  Sam West, Niamh Cusack, David Harewood and Barbara Windsor; children’s TV character Peppa Pig; children’s authors Babette Cole, Anne Fine and Jonathan Stroud; novelists Anthony Horowitz, Marianne Levy, Steve Cole and Sally Gardner; and Children’s Laureate Malorie Blackman.
