The show reveals the inspirations behind the characters and explores the creative partnership between A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard, brought to life through sketches, letters, photographs, cartoons, ceramics and fashion. Designed for both children and adults alike, the exhibition captures the timeless adventure of story-telling and the relationship between text and illustration.

Tickets can be booked online here.
