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 London 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.
