The Jake Atlas
Treasure Hunt

This event has now passed.

This event is now closed.

Straight from the mouth of a best-selling author and Egyptologist, Rob Lloyd Jones takes children on a fascinating journey: from how he started writing (and how you can too!), to where ideas come from, and the real life treasure hunt that inspired his new novel.

Rob’s fun and interactive event includes take-home facts about tombs and treasure, a reading from his new book, a quiz and prizes.

Recommended for: 7+

‘A couple of days ago I was a schoolboy with terrible grades and even worse behaviour – and a way of causing trouble that drove people nuts. Now I am a member of a super high-tech treasure hunting team searching for a lost tomb so I can save my parents from being turned into mummies by an evil cult. Things have moved pretty fast…’
