Watford Observer: Michael Palin visits Northwood school Michael Palin visits Northwood school

Explorer and comedian, Michael Palin, visited a Northwood school this week to speak to guests about his travels.

The television and film star entertained about 1,000 members of the school and community at Merchant Taylors’ School, in Sandy Lodge Lane, on Tuesday.

His visit was part of the Chorleywood Literary Festival, organised by Chorleywood Bookshop.

The Monty Python star spoke to the audience about his new book on Brazil and spent time signing autographs.

Simon Everson, head teacher of Merchant Taylors’ School, said: "It’s been a real delight to hear Mr Palin speaking so eloquently about such a fascinating topic.

"It has been a long road from Monty Python to Rio de Janiero and he must be the only lumberjack in our history to become one of our true national treasures."
