Saturday 4th February from 10.00am – 4.00pm
Over a thousand visitors came along to meet children’s author and illustrator Nick Sharratt at the Kirkby Gallery. There was a steady queue all day as Nick met children and had a chat before signing books and cards. There were also many arty activities and competitions available throughout the day. It was a big thank you to Tina Ball ( Culture Development and Events Officer ) and her amazing band of energetic volunteers who were on hand to support the day.
Nicks exhibition – Pirates Pants and Wellyphants will be at the Gallery from 4th February – 22nd April, located in the Kirkby Centre, upstairs opposite the library.
Nick has written and illustrated many books himself and also illustrated books by Jacqueline Wilson, Julia Donaldson and Jeremy Strong.
