A new exhibition celebrating the work of one of Britain’s best known children’s author–illustrators Judith Kerr is coming to Shire Hall Museum!

From 16th March, ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ will fill our exhibition space, exploring Kerr’s life and creations, and marking the 50th anniversary of the much-loved classic.

Originated by Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books, ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ exhibition features high quality facsimiles of Judith Kerr’s original illustrations from the Seven Stories collection and promises to bring this delightful book to life for a new generation of family audiences.

Alongside facsimiles of original artwork, notes and sketches children will enjoy stepping into Sophie’s kitchen to have tea with a life-size tiger!




Entry included with a Museum ticket.
