People who have saved this event:



'What Are You Like?' contains a series of self-revealing artworks by people in the public eye. Based on a Victorian parlour game in which you describe yourself with images of your favourite things, the conrtibutors to the exhibition were asked to illustrate eight of their favourite animal, book, comfrot, food, pastime and music. Quentin Blake, Eric Clapton, Shirley Hughes, Andrew Marr, Mary Fedden, Paul Smith and Lauren Child are amongst the famous names who have contributed to this exhibition. The diverse range of works on display allows you to gain an exclusive insight into the lives and personalities of these individuals. There are many activities that are sure to enthuse creative minds and hands to get active this summer. See our events page for more details of activities for all ages! A touring exhibition by the House of Illustration.
