This is an amazing chance to meet Chris Riddell, the UK Children's Laureate and discover the inspiration behind his stories and art. The audience members can ask him questions such as 'Where do you get your ideas?' and Chris will pick his favourites and draw an answer live, giving an insight into the Laureate's world. The lucky people he picks may even get to take their doodle-answers home with them!
