This exhibition celebrates Judith Kerr's classic title The Tiger Who Came to Tea.
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 enjoyed a great success on it's first tour of National Trust properties in 2018 - 20.    A second tour of the exhibition began early 2021 and will continue to 13 further venues until 2023.

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'
