Princess Anne Theatre, BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London
Series 3 preview of BAFTA nominated CBBC football drama. Followed by Q&A hosted by Ben Shires with cast and director, Joe Talbot, and author Dan Freedman.

Inspired by the books of Dan Freedman, Jamie Johnson is about a 13 year old and his friends who live and breathe football. Series 3 returns with Jamie trying out for professional club Foxborough FC, Dillon and Jethro playing for Foxborough’s rivals, Hawkstone FC, and Jack – determined not to be left behind – striking out on her own by starting a new team.  Jamie and his friends learn that no matter what your abilities, or the mistakes you make, all that really matters is loving the game. 

Featuring cameos from some of football’s biggest names, including Jurgen Klopp, Louis Suarez, Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling, the F2 Freestylers, Poet & Vuj, Spencer FC and The England Women’s Football Team, Jamie Johnson is produced by The Short Form Film Company.

The following cast members will be available for autographs following the screening and Q&A:
