Event details

Michael Morpurgo began writing stories in the early ‘70s, inspired by the children he taught in his primary school class in Kent.

He has written over 130 books, including 'The Butterfly Lion', 'Kensuke’s Kingdom', 'Private Peaceful' and 'War Horse', which was adapted for a hugely successful stage production by the National Theatre and then, in 2011, for a film directed by Steven Spielberg.

But what about the real-life story of Michael Morpurgo? How did a boy supremely uninterested in books, who dreamed of becoming an army officer, become a bestselling author and Children's Laureate? What stories in Michael's own life motivated him to write more than a hundred books for children?

To celebrate his 75th birthday, Morpurgo will be interviewed by award-winning actor and comedian, Katy Brand.

Join one of the UK’s best-loved authors as he shares his gift for magical storytelling and reveals the secrets nearly 50 years of writing have taught him.

Starts: 7.30pm
Tickets: £27*, £33*. Ages 18 and under £17*.
Venue: The Apex, Bury St Edmunds
