CHRISTOPHER LLOYD – ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING!
JERSEY OPERA HOUSE / FRIDAY 27 SEPTEMBER / 12.00
SUITABLE KS2 + 3
SPONSORED BY SANTANDER INTERNATIONAL
A History of Earth, Dinosaurs, Rulers, Robots and Other Things Too Numerous to Mention
Using a giant 25-foot-long timeline as a backdrop, and his signature coat of many pockets, Christopher will stop off at 15 defining moments that have shaped all history – natural, stone age, ancient and modern. Each moment is represented by a different everyday object that represents a theme as significant to explaining the past as it is pertinent to determining the future.
“Taking a step back, is often far more valuable than racing two steps ahead”, says the author, who is famous for enthralling audiences all over the world with his highly interactive talks. “And when you take that step back and see how knowledge connects together you’ll discover how the real world is far more amazing than anything you can make up!”
‘ABSOLUTELY AMAZING … Children will love it – and adults too!’ Jacqueline Wilson
