The Tiger Who Came To Tea

Event Navigation

The Grosvenor Museum is currently closed, we hope to reopen The Tiger Who Came to Tea when restrictions are eased.

We know you can’t come and see the Tiger in person at the moment, but here are some images of this wonderful exhibition from Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books.



This Christmas at the Grosvenor Museum meet The Tiger Who Came To Tea. 

Celebrating Judith Kerr’s much-loved children’s book, this family-friendly exhibition features a life-size model tiger and facsimile artwork from the iconic picture book.

The tiger – and a re-creation of the kitchen from the book – makes the perfect photo opportunity for fans of the book of all ages.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea began life as a bedtime story for Judith Kerr’s own children, before being published in 1968. It quickly became a classic and by the time it celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018, it had been translated into 11 languages and sold over five million copies.

This delightful exhibition introduces Judith’s charming and enduring picture book to a new generation of readers and is a Christmas treat for families and art lovers of all ages.


The Tiger Who Came To Tea exhibition is created by Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books, and kindly sponsored by the Grosvenor Museum Society.
