Grab your Frobscottle and join us for a fun family friendly exhibition of the magical illustrations that brought the BFG to life! This exhibition was curated by Quentin Blake.

The exhibition features 40 of his original artworks, prepared for Roald Dahl’s classic story The BFG.

The exhibition is presented courtesy of the House of Illustration and includes unpublished illustrations which will be exhibited for the first time alongside the final illustrations for the book. The exhibition includes some of the first designs for the character providing a fascinating insight into the collaboration between author and illustrator, and a glimpse of a BFG that might have been.

The exhibition will run alongside a programme of family activities from arts and crafts to our very own version of Dream Country!

Please check our website for more details the opening times for this special exhibition.
