The Greatest Show on Earth with Mini Grey

The Story Museum, 42 Pembroke Street, OX1 1BP

“Roll up! Roll up! For The Greatest Show on Earth!” Join local author and illustrator, Mini Grey, as she takes you on a whistle-stop tour through the story of life on Earth – all 4.6 billion years of it!

Mini will introduce you to the amazing creatures that have evolved on our planet, and the events – including mass extinctions – that have caused chaos. Fasten your safety belts as we voyage into the deep past and explore an actual 600-million-year Tape Measure of Time. Learn to draw The Greatest Show’s host, Rod the Roach, along with some of his fellow Shoe Box Theatre Troupe, and how to use them to create your own insect theatre show.

Suitable for ages 7+

There will be book signings, and a chance to chat to Mini Grey after her talk.
