Tiger and Mog are back after a bit of a paws!
After a long rest due to the Covid-19 pandemic The Tiger Who Came to Tea and the adventures of Mog the Forgetful Cat exhibition is back at Z-arts from Friday 28 May, and has been extended to run until early 2022. This exhibition is inspired by the treasured children’s books from beloved author Judith Kerr (published by HarperCollins Children’s Books).
In the only outing outside of the capital, The Tiger Who Came to Tea and the Adventures of Mog the Forgetful Cat is the latest exhibition designed and created by Discover Children’s Story Centre, Stratford and follows on from the sell-out success of A World Inside a Book: Gruffalos, Dragons and Other Creatures, based around the works of Julia Donaldson and the illustrations of Axel Scheffler.
Children and their grown-ups can join The Tiger for tea and hear the tale of his surprise visit to Sophie and her mummy. Open the door and take a trip into the real-life world of Mog the Forgetful Cat. Crawl through a giant cat flap and find Mog’s family house. Look for the hidden eggs for her breakfast. Explore her garden – but watch out for the mousedogbird! Pick up your groceries at Mog’s local shops, settle down with a story at the bookshop, and help Mog and her friends get better at the V.E.T.
Discover even more of Judith Kerr’s creatures as you meet Katinka with the magical tail and find the Crocodile under the Bed – perhaps he’ll fly you to a special birthday party with the King of the Jungle. The Tiger Who Came to Tea and the Adventures of Mog the Forgetful Cat is suitable for ages 0-8 years and their grown-ups.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea and the Adventures of Mog the Forgetful Cat is the UK’s first immersive exhibition of the work of Judith Kerr, created by Discover Children’s Story Centre and supported by HarperCollins and Kerr-Kneale Productions Ltd.
Saskia Metcalf, Creative Development Manager at Z-arts, says “We were so sad to close the exhibition just a few weeks after it opened last year due to the pandemic, so we’re delighted to be able to reopen safely again to bring an amazing exhibition to the families of Manchester, who have really had a tough year with restrictions. We’re excited to see families and children enjoy their favourite books in a new and interactive way, and hope The Tiger Who Came to Tea and the Adventures of Mog the Forgetful Cat will build on the brilliant experience families from all over the North West have at Z-arts.”
Schools performances are also available. If your school is interested in visiting, email Tiffany@z-arts.org
