A new exhibition by multi-award-winning author and illustrator, Catherine Rayner, is coming to Nunnington Hall for the summer, and it will be on display from Saturday 17th July – Sunday 5th September 2021.
Catherine, who has written over 20 books for children and illustrated many more for other well-known authors, including Julia Donaldson and Michael Morpurgo, will be onsite for the opening day of the exhibition, Saturday 17 July between 12 noon and 2 pm, to meet visitors and sign books.
Nunnington’s exhibition will be the largest-ever display of Catherine’s original work. It will explore many of her much-loved characters, which have been adapted for musicals, television and theatre. As visitors explore the exhibition, they will spot all kinds of creatures, from the kingfishers inspired by the local wildlife found at Nunnington, to tigers from far-off lands – they may even discover dragons and unicorns if they look carefully. Visitors can find some of Catherine’s favourite books to read, fun and creative activities to have a go at, as well as a selection of Catherine’s sketchbooks used to create her favourite characters.
