The Lauren Child Summer Exhibition at Newby Hall
This hand-picked selection of rarely exhibited artworks reveals how her use of intricate mixed media collage and hand-drawings is effective in creating the iconic illustrative style recognised internationally to be the work of Waterstones Children’s Laureate 2017-19.

Lauren hopes that you will also enjoy our interactive garden trail which features some of her most loved characters leaving you inspired to take part in the creative writing and drawing competition we are holding here at Newby Hall this summer.

Don’t forget to make the most of an exclusive opportunity to view Lauren’s very own doll’s house in our Dollshouse Exhibition where a set from Lauren’s adaptation of “The Princess and the Pea”, captured by photographer Polly Borland is also on show.
