All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others… Award-winning illustrator Chris Mould brings George Orwell’s classic and visionary story of revolution to a brand new YA audience with striking new animations in his trademark satirical gothic style. A wonderful chance to watch this sublime draftsman at work -Chris will illustrate some characters from the book live, while he talks about the process of re-imagining a world-renowned text and shares some tips on how to tackle the art of animal illustration.

Animal Farm is just an ordinary farm – until the animals revolt. They get rid of the irresponsible farmer. The other animals are sure that life is improving, but as systems are replaced and half-truths are retold, a new hierarchy emerges… Orwell’s tale of propaganda, power and greed has never felt more pertinent.
