Judith Kerr: The Tiger Who Came to Tea - at Mottisfont

This delightful exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of one of our best-loved children’s books, ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. Alongside these illustrations you’ll find artworks from other Judith Kerr classics including the Mog stories, plus film footage about the author’s fascinating life. Children can ‘take tea’ with a 5ft cuddly tiger in Mottisfont’s pop-up kitchen, and outside, there’s an interactive trail. Supported by Seven Stories the National Centre for Children’s Books, and HarperCollins Children’s Books.
