Torquay Museum: an exhibition of dragons. 9th March- sometime in June
For the first time ever most of the artwork from Tell Me a Dragon has been gathered together in one place. Combined with beautiful things from the museum’s collection this exhibition shines. Signed books are available from the shop and I will be attending a closing event just before the show end. BEWARE the gallery has curious opening hours. School visits are welcome.
The exhibition will be moving to Hornsey Library at the end of June and is available on request for libraries, galleries, museums. Contact me to request the show.
