The Tiger Who Came To Tea

21 May - 3 July

Get up close to the beloved artwork from Judith Kerr’s much-loved children’s classic picture book, and visit the Tiger for 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 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 summer treat for families and art lovers of all ages.


  • Location: Temporary Exhibition Gallery, ground floor


The Tiger Who Came To Tea exhibition is created by Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books. The exhibition is supported by Arts Council England.
