When Rosie Meets Martin….
We’re thrilled to be able to announce that the UK’s most controversial cartoonist is now coming to Herne Bay to meet Britain’s most unexpected MP.
Rosie Duffield will be hosting/compéring Rowson on Rowson at the King’s Hall, Herne Bay on Sat Aug 5th @ 3pm.
Until recently, a comedy writer and satirist herself, Rosie overturned a 10,000 majority to become the first non-Conservative Member of Parliament for Canterbury and Whitstable since 1885.
Three weeks ago, Martin Rowson achieved an unique soubriquet for a political cartoonist when he was attacked in a two page editorial in the Daily Mail as “sick and disgusting and deranged and offensive”.
But according to stand-up comedians like Mark Thomas and Phil Jupitus, Martin Rowson is: is “an inky Ninja” and “the best cartoonist working in Britain today”.
While Tory Grandee (and frequent victim) Lord Baker hails Rowson as: “a brilliant cartoonist who is just as funny in person as he is on paper”.
Martin Rowson and Rosie Duffield will be appearing together @ 3pm on Saturday Aug 5th at The King’s Hall, Beacon Hill, Herne Bay, CT6 6BA.
Admission is free. But tickets can be reserved here:
