Munch and Listen programme: Monday 27 March, 12.15pm

Lucinda Gosling discusses the life and career of William Heath Robinson (1872-1944), one of Britain's best-loved humorous artists, who was born in Stroud Green and lived for some time in Highgate. She looks in particular at his cartoons produced during the First World War, a period that inspired him to finely hone the convoluted contraptions and absurd inventions with which he forever after became associated.

Doors open at 12 noon. Refreshments available.

Kindly supported by the Friends of Bruce Castle

Lucinda works at Mary Evans Picture Library and is author of several books on Great War illustration and cartoons, including 'Brushes & Bayonets' (Osprey, 2008), 'It's All A Bit Heath Robinson' (History Press, 2015) and 'A Better 'Ole' (History Press, 2015).
