Another way that the programme is marking this anniversary is with a special Gold Badge walkway, which will be located right by the Blue Peter garden at MediaCityUK in Salford.

The walkway will be a special path to honour some of the well-known names who have been given gold badges over the years for the amazing things that they have done in sport, literature, music and other areas.

   Gleeson discusses the real A. A. Milne0 Comments

In a new interview with The Sun, Domhnall Gleeson discusses fame and his portrayal of Winnie-the-Pooh author A.A. Milne.


  Accio Quote:
When we would go out and people would come up to him looking for autographs — it wasn’t pictures in those days — and everybody wanted a word, even though we’d be trying to have a family dinner. I used to notice myself and my three brothers angling around him to try to keep him guarded from the points of view of other people, because he’s your dad first, before he’s an actor that people know. And of course I’ve experienced a little bit of that myself because of Star Wars and Harry Potter. You want your time to be your own, but it’s part of the deal you make, I suppose. Thinking about it for a child is terrifying.

   Illustrated edition of "Beedle the Bard" to be released!0 Comments

Bloomsbury Children’s Books announce Chris Riddell as the artist who will create stunning images for an illustrated edition of J.K. Rowling’sThe Tales of Beedle the Bard sold in aid of the author’s international children’s charity Lumos.

Publishing on 2nd October 2018, this classic from the Wizarding World will be gloriously reimagined in a large colour gift edition by the multi-award-winning Riddell. He will mix his signature, beautiful watercolour with line and tonal illustrations, capturing the spirit of J.K. Rowling’s ingenious text with his trademark wit and elegance.

Chris Riddell is a bestselling author/illustrator and former Waterstones Children’s Laureate. On being commissioned for this project Chris said, “To be invited into the world of Harry Potter is an immense honour and incredibly exciting. These fairy tales are vivid and beautifully crafted and will resonate in the sumptuous format Bloomsbury have given me. But the true joy has been to discover the richness and texture of Dumbledore’s footnotes. I can’t wait to pull on my robes and begin my tenure as a supply teacher at Hogwarts!”

Rebecca McNally, Children’s Publishing Director, said of Chris’s selection: “It takes extraordinary skill and imagination to illustrate J.K. Rowling’s highly inventive and original book, which has both wonderful, classic-feeling fairy tales and the inimitable, witty and subversive notes of Albus Dumbledore. There was only ever going to be one person for this job – it just had to be the once-in-a-lifetime talent of Chris Riddell.”

Chris Riddell is an award-winning illustrator and acclaimed political cartoonist. He is currently the only artist to have won the Kate Greenaway Medal three times, most recently for his illustrations in Neil Gaiman’s The Sleeper and the Spindle. Chris Riddell was Waterstones Children’s Laureate from 2015 to 2017 and has recently been announced as a Booktrust Ambassador. Chris has illustrated the work of many celebrated children’s authors, including five Neil Gaiman titles. He is the author of the bestselling Goth Girl and Ottoline series and co-creator of the much-loved The Edge Chronicles.

Riddell joins fellow Greenaway winner Jim Kay and fine artist Olivia Lomenech Gill in a world-class team of illustration talent chosen to create colour illustrated editions of J.K. Rowling’s work.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard was first published in 2008. An essential read for any Harry Potter fan, it contains five classic fairy tales, including ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’, which plays a key role in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger, the tales are introduced by J.K. Rowling. Also included are Professor Albus Dumbledore’s notes on each tale, which appear by kind permission of the Hogwarts Archives. The Tales of Beedle the Bard is published in aid of Lumos, J.K. Rowling’s international children’s charity, which works to improve the lives of disadvantaged children around the world.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling, illustrated by Chris Riddell

   "Strike" series to be renamed in America0 Comments

Deadline is reporting that The Strike TV series will be renamed C.B. Strike when it airs on Cinemax in the US and Canada.


  Accio Quote:
As for C.B. Strike (UK title: Strike), it had originally been earmarked for HBO. Following conversations between Antholis and HBO programming president Casey Bloys, the two concluded that the show “would have a greater impact” on Cinemax than on HBO, Antholis said. “We’re looking for opportunities to broaden our audience (on Cinemax) and appeal to viewers besides the kind of core adrenaline-action oriented viewer, and we had an opportunity with C.B. Strike — it’s a very appealing, entertaining kind of whodunit show.”

Information has been released regarding the purchase of tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child theatre shpw in New York City.

And while the play was conceived to be seen on the same day or consecutive evenings, it is also possible to purchase parts for non-consecutive dates, or even a single part.


Registration opens on October 1st at 10:00 a.m. ET and closes on October 5th at 10:00 p.m.
