Recently we were informed of a special event happening onboard London’s Emirate Air Line Cable Car.
As part of World Book Day celebrations, three lucky kids were given the chance last week to meet famous English comedian and author Julian Clary.
Julian Clary, comedian and novelist, said: “It was a special moment to read parts of my new book The Bolds to the Rescue, in such a scenic location. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the book, which has made me even more excited for the release tomorrow.”
Steve Hook, parent of lucky winner Matthew, said that: “Matthew loves reading and is always really excited for World Book Day, so to have a storytelling experience across the Thames with a famous author was unforgettable. Julian Clary was very entertaining and Matthew can’t wait to read all of The Bolds to the Rescue.”
For us at the Gondola Project, we hearing stories like this. It once again demonstrates that cable car infrastructure is so much more than just transport.
By partnering with businesses and tastemakers, a gondola system can help create new experiences for riders while further strengthening ties with the local community.
