Victoria Art Gallery in Bath opens Ladybird book exhibit till April 2024 - an exciting trip down memory lane

Ladybird books have been delighting children over the country with their bright, colourful images since 1867 and now locals and tourists of Bath can uncover the story behind these brilliant artists in the new exhibit ‘The Wonderful World of the Ladybird Book Artists’.

Exhibition curator Helen Day has been collecting these books for over 20 years and is delighted to share the artwork with the local public. The Gallery is focused on making this exhibit accessible for all ages by including a free ‘I Spy’ trail that brings the Ladybird books to life along with ‘Toddler Thursdays’ that welcomes pre - schoolers for story - time sessions and Family craft sessions inspired by Ladybird artwork throughout February half term and Easter school holidays.

The exhibition will follow the artists and real locations linked to Ladybird books and the story of a humble Loughborough print business that became one of the most famous children’s book publishing companies in the UK.

The exhibit will be opened from 19th January to 14th April 2024 and will be free to locals with a Discovery card - to find out more about the Ladybird exhibition visit Ladybird or to book your tickets visit Victoria Art Gallery.
