Explore far-future civilisations and adventures with author Philip Reeve. Joining us at RAMM, as part of the Exetreme Imagination Festival, Philip will talk about his work developing both the Mortal Engines and Railhead Series. If you enjoy Philip’s enthralling novels, and would love to ask him about the worlds and characters that feature in them, this event will include an exciting opportunity to chat with Philip. So be sure to come prepared with your questions.

Mortal Engines covers nearly 20 years of a far-future age, The Traction Era, when cities roam the world hunting for smaller towns to dismantle for their raw-materials. It is a time of conflict, with airships in the skies, amphibious limpet-submarines lurking in the oceans, and dangerous bits of technology left over from a long-ago war lie waiting to be discovered.

Zen Starling rides the rails and his luck across a place of many dangers in Railhead. Explore this adventure novel set in a future civilization of many worlds, all linked by a hyperspace railway.

This event will focus on Philip’s work for older children and teenagers.

Under 12’s must be accompanied by an adult with an additional ticket required for the adult.
