As well as being The Guardian’s resident satirical purveyor of political nightmares, he has also been Cartoonist Laureate for London, Chairman of the British Cartoonists’ Society, and has served three times as vice-president of the Zoological Society of London.

Last year, in our live-streamed festival, he provided one of our highlights with an impromptu show-and-tell of his greatest work.

This time, we’re giving him free rein to take you into his world.

He’ll rant. He’ll draw. He’ll recite poetry. He’ll dress up as Bob Ross. He might even draw some cartoons.

Not to be missed.
