Sophie Thompson

Our Patron, Sophie Thompson, continues to keep more than busy. She is playing the role of Captain Hook in Peter Pan at the National Theatre from mid November, so why try to go and see it!


As well as her cooking book "My Family Kitchen", which is hugely entertaining reading, if you are looking for Christmas gifts for 6-7 year olds, try "Zoo Boy", published last year, and her forthcoming "Zoo Boy and the Jewel Thieves"...!
