This interactive exhibition taking place from the 11 Jan – 29 Mar 2020 is perfect for families and any Nick Sharratt or Tracey Beaker fans!

Pirates, Pants and Wellyphants is a wonderfully bright and colourful touring exhibition all about Nick Sharratt and his illustrations. There’s loads to look at, from drawings he did as a boy and student to original picture book artwork. There are sections on how picture books are made, lots of activities to do, including dressing up, creating your own ‘Sharracter’ and working in his studio.

Plus meet Nick Sharratt at our extra special launch on 11 Jan, 10.30am – 4pm. Bring your books to be signed by the man himself or purchase a new book in our shop at Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery. Enjoy a fun Nick Sharratt inspired lunch in our cafe, available during the exhibition period.
