If you would like to involve the younger members of your family in the alumni experience, then what better way than in the company of Fitz and Will the Cambridge Cats. Laura Robson Brown and Katherine Mann, alumni and creators of the highly popular children’s picture book series set in Cambridge will be on hand to introduce you to the adventures of Fitz and Will through book readings and a visit to some of the cats’ favourite places in the city. Have some paper and a pen at the ready for a quick illustration masterclass with Jia Han, illustrator of the books. The cats themselves may even make a special appearance to say hello to the children. Ideal for children aged 2-8, but purr-fect for cat and Cambridge lovers of all ages.

A recording of this session is now available on YouTube.
