Dive into your imagination
The magic of Seven Stories will go on with a host of online events, book recommendations and resources to support families once again for our 3rd lockdown.
Seven Stories have also digitised three of their previous, popular exhibitions so that you can enjoy the stunning artwork, interesting facts and carefully curated exhibitions from anywhere in the world!
Here are three exhibitions showcasing some of the best in the Seven Stories archive collection:
Twists and Tails - the Story of Angelina Ballerina (online exhibition) Celebrate Katharine Holabird and Helen Craig’s best–selling series through manuscripts and illustrations from our our Angelina Ballerina Collection.
Tiger, Mog and Pink Rabbit - A Judith Kerr Retrospective (online exhibition) One of Seven Stories' most popular exhibitions, Judith Kerr's delightful illustrations and incredible childhood history has been on tour across the UK. Browse early illustrations, letters and artwork from our collection.
Mystery, Magic and Midnight Feasts - The Many Adventures of Enid Blyton (online exhibition) One of the most prolific authors of all time, Enid Blyton (1897-1968) wrote between 600 and 700 books - so many that even she wasn't sure of the exact number! She wrote stories full of fantasy, she wrote school story, adventure and mystery. Explore our Enid Blyton exhibition online.
Some of their new exciting workshops include ‘Fairytale factory’ a creative writing workshop for budding writers who want to reinvent old classics!
