About the event

Paul Jackson is a Norfolk-based illustrator, sculptor Master storyteller, captivating audiences with his immersive narratives for over 30 years. Now, Paul channels a lifetime of creative practices and imagination into his fantasy book series – ‘The Realms of Elsewhere’.

The Realms of Elsewhere is a pioneering 20-year project, culminating in a nine-book series whose inspiration spans nearly five decades, captured in other-worldly watercolour illustrations and porcelain sculptures. Paul, the mastermind behind this epic, seamlessly blends his roles as both writer and illustrator. As we celebrate the twelfth year of this monumental endeavour in 2024, we celebrate the first trilogy.

Currently, only the first two books are available for purchase, but Paul will bring stories from all three books in the first trilogy to life in an exclusive performance evening. This event, set in the Music Room at Anteros, will weave narratives with live music composed and performed by Paul on piano, kora, and flutes.

Between performances, there will be a Q&A session delving into the creation of this expansive world series. Paul will discuss how his 46-year career as a sculptor, illustrator, and storyteller has shaped the intricate world of Elsewhere, comprising over 30 fantastical countries, each with its own myths, creation stories, and histories.

In addition to the storytelling event, a comprehensive exhibition will showcase Paul's work. Laid out in chronological order, the exhibit will feature illustrations, sculptures, audiobook extracts and backstories for each book and several short films. Visitors are invited to explore Paul's journals and sketchbooks, gaining insight into his creative process for a truly immersive experience.

Join us for an evening of storytelling, music, and artistic exploration as we journey through The Realms of Elsewhere and celebrate Paul's extraordinary vision.

Doors will open at 19:00 for the Exhibition in our Main Gallery and the performance upstairs in the Music Room will begin at 19:30.
