May 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Dr Brian Dakin is Aston University lecturer and using spoken word as well as performance, he will introduce you to one of our “Best kept secrets.” Charlie “Chas” Grigg lived in the Black Country his whole life, but what he gave to the world spanned way beyond. Charlie was the the illustrator of the beloved Beano & Dandy comic books. He also designed many of the “Naughty” Seaside Postcards we are so used to seeing.
There will be a collection of Charlie’s work on display for you to look at. As well as copies of Dr Dakin’s book which will accompany the Lecture.
