12noon-4pm, Saturday 11 March
Gloucester Cathedral and the King-Smith family are delighted to present an afternoon of celebration on Saturday 11 March 2023, to mark the centenary year of the birth of Dick King-Smith.
Dick King-Smith is famous for writing ‘The Sheep-Pig’, the novel which inspired the Oscar-winning film, ‘Babe’. His other heart-warming tales include ‘The Fox Busters’ and ‘Harry’s Mad’, as well as ‘Ambrose Follows His Nose’, an unfinished novel which his great-granddaughter Josie has recently completed and was published last year.
Families are warmly welcome to join us for a number of special events in the Chapter House of the Cathedral between 12noon-4pm, including:
- A Q&A with the King-Smith family at 12noon
- Book signings and readings
- FREE Arts and Crafts activities with Read with Me
During Choral Evensong at 4.30pm, thanks and praise will be given for Dick King Smith’s life and legacy.
All are warmly welcome to attend, with no tickets required.
