One of Sidcup’s most famous sons, Sir Quentin Blake, is visiting Sidcup Library tomorrow (June 25) as one of a number of events to celebrate his knighthood.

Sir Quentin, who celebrated his 80th birthday last December, was knighted in the Queen’s New Year Honours, will be talking about projects he has been involved in since 2000.

Tickets for an audience with the Roald Dahl illustrator, which is aimed at adults, have already been snapped up as he will talk about his working processes, collaborators, travels and various commissions.

Sir Quentin has already made his mark on the library with a specially-commissioned mural in 2007.

The Bexley Times interviewed the famous illustrator in December. Find out how his art links back to his time as a Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School student in the link to the side.
