Tracy Beaker Returns: Tracy Beaker Story Event
This page will tell you everything you need to know about the Tracy Beaker Story Event.
What is the Tracy Beaker Story Event?
The Tracy Beaker Story Event is giving children across the UK the chance to get involved in writing a brand-new Tracy Beaker adventure that will be made into an animated storybook on the CBBC website here.
How can I get involved?
The new Tracy Beaker story will have 7 chapters.
Chapter 1 has been written by Elly Brewer, who writes on the Tracy Beaker Returns TV show. She has written the first chapter to give you an idea of the style of the story and also to give you a starting point for the plot. This chapter is already in the book – you can read it by clicking on the “Story Event” book here.
The other 6 chapters are being written by children across the UK – and you can get involved!
Three of the chapters (2, 4 & 6) will be written on the Tracy Beaker Story Event board on the CBBC Messageboards.
When are the story sessions?
You can join in the sessions by coming to the Tracy Beaker Story Event messageboard on the following days:
Chapter 2: Friday 24th February 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Chapter 4: Friday 9th March 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Chapter 6: Friday 23rd March 6:30pm – 7:30pm *****NEXT SESSION****
You can come to any one you like – or all three! Just make sure you have a CBBC iD so you can post – you can get one here.
You'll be able to read new chapters the week after each story session. Make sure you read the latest chapter before coming to the story event, so you know what has happened in the story so far. We hope you can make it!
How does it work?
Jonathan Evans, who writes Tracy Beaker Returns, will be at the session and help to discuss the plot ideas with you. Please note that because we are expecting a lot of kids to come to these sessions, he may not be able to talk to children individually, but after the session he will read every single one of the comments and write up the next chapter!
What about the other chapters?
The other three chapter (3,5 & 7) will be written by children from charities in the North of England who have had challenging upbringings like the characters from the show. These sessions aren't open to the public but you can of course read the chapters written by them once they have been published!
