New Walk Museum set for Ladybird Books exhibition

There’s a new exhibition heading to New Walk Museum this summer, all focusing on the wonderful world of Ladybird Books.

Yes, Ladybird children’s books were printed and published in Loughborough from 1915 right through to 1973 and formed such a big part of many people’s childhood, in Leicestershire and beyond. Now, they’ve recently enjoyed a revival with a range comedy books being released. 

The exhibition will look at original artworks and the artists behind some of the best loved books. 

More activities and creative fun for all the family expected to be announced in due course. Keep at eye on Leicester Museum’s Facebook page.

The exhibition will run from 13 July – 1 September 2019.
