Here Be Dragons

Saturday, 22 July @ 10:30 - Sunday, 8 October @ 17:00

£4.00

The worlds of literature, film and art, both past and present, demonstrate the enduring popularity of the dragon as magical creature, fearsome fire-breather, insomniac guardian of treasures, and scaly flying serpent. A creature to be loved and loathed, perhaps, but never cuddled, stroked or offended!

Our family oriented summer show sets out to show dragon lore through images created by some of the world’s best children’s illustrators and writers, from Chris Riddell (Ottaline and Goth Girl) and Axel Scheffler (The Gruffalo) to Quentin Blake and Cressida Cowell (How to Train Your Dragon).

Visitors to this awe-inspiring exhibition can expect to encounter an exciting Dragon’s Den – in two and three dimensions – crammed with creatures that have leapt out of their favourite books. There will be copies of famous dragon tales to browse in our story corner and purchase in our shop. We will also be holding exciting dragon events, workshops and storytelling sessions.
