Children’s author Lauren Child is celebrating the 15-year anniversary of her Charlie and Lola books with an exhibition at Mottisfont, the National Trust property in Hampshire. This also includes an exciting children’s adventure trail.

This is the first retrospective of Lauren’s work and features around 50 artworks. It runs from 18 July to 6 September. Details from nationaltrust.org.uk/mag/mottisfont

This is a bit far from Tunbridge Wells, but some of you out there who are interested in children’s books may be able to take a look.

Her work is an example of children’s books that can be truly enjoyed by parents (and grandparents) as well.
