The Tiger Who Came to Tea

11th May 2019

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the iconic book, written by Judith Kerr OBE, The Tiger Who Came to Tea exhibition will open in Co Down on Friday 10 May and run daily until the end of June.

Located in the Stable Yard at Rowallane Garden, the exhibition will bring Judith Kerr’s classic story to life through engaging and immersive environments and storytelling time.

Meet the Tiger and more

Visitors will have the opportunity to view ten framed artworks - facsimiles of original artwork from the book, notes and sketches and enjoy interactive props, including a fully interactive play kitchen and a giant five-foot, life-size model tiger knocking at the door for tea. There will also be dress up capes and copies of the Tiger Who Came to Tea (and some of Judith’s other picture books) for visitors to enjoy.

In addition to these magical indoor displays, a themed outdoor family activity trail will keep kids, parents and grandparents alike entertained.
