In SWLDI’s major showcase of 2016, 350 year 5 pupils from Caerphilly, Neath Port Talbot, Newport, Torfaen and the Vale of Glamorgan enjoyed a fun, interactive show by Chris Riddell, UK Children’s Laureate and Welsh illustrator Huw Aaron at the Riverfront, Newport on Tuesday 8 November 2016.

Pupils had the opportunity to direct Chris and Huw as their illustrations evolved live on the stage’s big screen. Chris and Huw also told their stories of how they built their careers in illustration – showing that a career in the arts is both achievable and rewarding. Huw and Chris signed hundreds of books.
