Uncover the story of the talented artists who illustrated Ladybird books during their heyday, and see hundreds of Ladybird books on display.
This beautiful and colourful exhibition will showcase an unparalleled collection of Ladybird books, original artworks and artefacts, and show how the Ladybird illustrators played an enormous role in the extraordinary success of the company.

The exhibition is curated by Ladybird expert and enthusiast Helen Day, who has spent more than 20 years collecting and researching Ladybird books.
The Gallery is closed on Mondays, with the exception of Bank Holiday Mondays.
