Tony Robinson will be at Dorchester Literary Festival discussing his new autobiography No Cunning Plan.

Sir Tony Robinson has a stellar career lasting over fifty years. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, he reveals how the boy from South Woodford went from child stardom in the first stage production of Oliver!, a pint-sized pickpocket desperately bleaching his incipient moustache, to comedy icon Baldrick, the loyal servant and turnip aficionado in Blackadder. Packed full of incident and insight, No Cunning Plan is a funny, self-deprecating and always entertaining read by a hugely popular actor, presenter and author. 

Venue capacity: 250

Sir Tony Robinson is most famous for playing the role of Baldrick in Blackadder but he made his first professional appearance at the age of thirteen in the original stage version of Oliver! and went on to appear with the Chichester Festival Theatre, the RSC and the National Theatre. He wrote and starred in Maid Marian And Her Merry Men, and presented Time Team for twenty years. He has made numerous factual series, including The Worst Jobs In History and Tony Robinson's Time Walks. He is a multi award-winning children's television writer and has authored many children's books including the history series Tony Robinson's Weird World of Wonders. He has also written several books for adults.
