The Daily Telegraph’s cartoonist Matt Pritchett, MBE, will be appearing at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, on Sunday, September 12, as he shares his stories and cartoons from across his career.
Matt is the son of columnist Oliver Pritchett and grandson of novelist VS Pritchett.
He has worked on the Daily Telegraph under the pen name Matt since 1988 and his much-loved cartoons provide a consistently original take on the big news stories of the day as he produces daily jokes for the newspaper (8,000 and counting!).
Whether dealing with pandemics, political surprises, national absurdities or the weather, Matt always encapsulates the moment with the perfect cartoon.
Winner of many awards, he received an MBE in 2002 in recognition of his significant contribution to British journalism.
His work has also appeared in Punch and The Spectator.
The evening will include an auction of an original cartoon of Theatre Royal created exclusively for this event, which Matt will sign and personalise for the auction winner on the night.
There will also be a book signing after the event, which is a fundraising event for the theatre, where audience members can purchase one of Matt’s books and have it signed by him.
Tickets for the 7.30pm show start at £10.50 and can be booked
online at www.theatreroyal.org or by calling the Box Office on 01284 769505 (Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm).
