ELMER and Friends: The Colourful World of David McKee

Our brand new Elmer and Friends exhibition features original artwork from the Elmer series, as well as other David McKee classics, including Not Now BernardKing Rollo and Mr. Benn.

The exhibition is still in development and will be available for touring from March 2020.  It will be the second exhibition we have curated that features sensory elements mounted onto (or near to) framed original artworks (the first being Time to Get Up), allowing young children to explore the works not only visually, but with smells, sounds and textures of the items featured in the artwork.

Due to the cross-generational appeal of the exhibition, we have already had a great deal of interest from potential tour partners, so advise booking early to avoid disappointment.

If you are a Museum, Art Gallery or other venue that is interested in hosting this exhibition, you can contact the touring department by calling 0191 4952707 or, send us an email.
