BOO! BIRTHDAY BASH Friday 23rd October 6-8pm.
It’s Alice in Wonderlands 150th unbirthday, Crown Street Library’s birthday, and here at Creative Darlington’s Crown Street Art Gallery we are celebrating two years in this location. So Creative Darlington and Darlington Library have teamed together to mark the occasion. During the evening historian and author, Chris Lloyd will give a short talk on the enduring popularity of Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland and the inspiration for his writing, including connections to Croft on Tees and Darlington. Liz Million, Stuart Trotter, and Peter Barron together with Paul Wick, complete the line up of speakers giving a ten minute talk on their personal practice as an illustrator, artist, publisher or writer. Exhibitors will be on hand to answer your questions throughout the evening.
Suitable for adults, or those seeking a career in the industry.
