Another great performance from Henry Normal!

We’re delighted that Henry Normal has agreed to give the 2024 Linda Smith Lecture. A personal friend of Linda’s, Henry has had a dazzling career in TV comedy, writing for iconic programmes like The Mrs Merton Show, The Royle Family and Paul Calf’s Video Diary. He founded Baby Cow Productions (with Steve Coogan) and worked there for seventeen years on such shows as Gavin and Stacey and The Mighty Boosh. More recently, he has gone back to his roots as a hilarious performance poet, writing and starring in his own long-running Radio 4 show.

Linda Smith Lecture – Henry Normal

Wed 27 November


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
