A family-friendly, fun filled draw-along for all ages.

Following last year’s sell out show Nick Sharratt is back with a brand new show!

Join acclaimed children’s writer and illustrator Nick Sharratt and draw along with him! He'll be showing you how to sketch favourite characters like Tracy Beaker and Timothy Pope, sharing ways of creating fantastic creatures like dragons and unicorns, and giving loads of top tips. And to celebrate his latest book 'Nice Work for the Cat and the King' everything will have a special 'royal' twist!

Nick has illustrated close to 260 books. He’s worked with authors including Julia Donaldson, Michael Rosen and Kes Gray, and his books include You Choose, Shark in the Park and Pants. He's also the illustrator of Dame Jacqueline Wilson’s phenomenally popular children's novels. He's been awarded a gold Blue Peter badge too!

Remember to bring pencils, paper and something to lean on and expect plenty of chances to join in!

Running time: 75 minutes, no interval.

Special information: this performance will be followed by a meet and greet and book signing in the foyer. Please note that this can take up to 1.5 hours. Drinks and snacks will be available from the foyer along with colouring and drawing activities.
