The largest ever exhibition dedicated to the willy, nilly, silly old bear is coming to the V&A Museum.
There will be around 230 works dating back to 1920, including pencil drawings by E.H. Shepard, original manuscripts, and a voice recording of A.A. Milne reading his stories back in 1929. The Queen has even lent the museum a hand-painted ceramic tea set that was presented to her when she was just 2 years old.
The V&A will focus on all things Pooh; from the life of A.A. Milne’s son, Christopher Robin, to the inspo for the Hundred Acre Wood, aka Ashdown Forest. And, as well as admiring Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends, you’ll also find honey from the V&A’s very own rooftop hives in South Kensington. We’re buzzing.
Unfortunately we have to wait until December 9th for the exhibition to open (oh bother!), but it will run until April 2018. You can book your tickets here.
