The Tiger Who Came to Tea – a facsimile exhibition from Seven Stories

We are looking for tour partners for our new Small Stories exhibition

Our first exhibition celebrates Judith Kerr’s classic title The Tiger Who Came to Tea.  Due to the success of  the pilot version, currently touring National Trust properties around the UK, we have opened a second Tiger tour which has two remaining slots March/April and May/June 2022

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’

For this second tour, we will need to fill all of the available slots before we can recommission the creation of a brand new Tiger, set and props for this second round of the tour.

Each slot includes a school holiday period
