This exhibition celebrates Judith Kerr's classic title The Tiger Who Came to Tea.  Due to the success of the pilot version we are going to run a second Tiger tour open for booking from May 2020 to Dec 2021.
  
The exhibition consists of:

- 10 framed pieces of facsimile artwork from the book,
- a reproduction of Sophie’s kitchen for little visitors to play in, complete with its own cuddly 5ft Tiger! 
- 3 interpretation panels
- copies of the book
- bespoke dress up
- toys
 
The hire fee is £4,000 +VAT for a two month loan.

The exhibition has enjoyed tremendous success at all of the venues it's toured to thus far, visitor numbers are up - so much so that Quarry Bank had a 20,000 visitor increase from the same period last year.  

Visitors have been on social media praising the exhibition:

'More events like the tiger who came to tea for the families, linked to affordable keep sakes that are relevant to the theme’.

'Great little exhibition for my two, and clearly very popular'
