When do footballers poo? Can you play football on Mars? Why is the eagle such a popular mascot? And what is your favourite goal celebration? Join author Ben Lyttleton as he teaches you about the world through the prism of football. Answering questions on subjects including geography, biology and drama, Ben will tell you true stories, real science and fascinating facts from his new co-authored book Football School: Where Football Rules the World, which is currently the #1 bestseller children’s sports title on Amazon.co.uk. This book is incredibly topical and effective in making primary school class subjects accessible, understandable and fun to young readers. This laugh-out-loud talk is perfect for any boy or girl who loves football.

Ben will be signing copies of his book immediately after the event.
