Winnie the Pooh ready for V&A takeover

Dedicated exhibition for character runs from December 9, 2017 to April 8, 2018.

A new exhibition focusing on Winnie the Pooh is due to open its doors at the V&A Museum on Saturday December 9.

Winnie the Pooh: Exploring a Classic will run until April 8, 2018 and features close to a century’s worth of merchandise for the much-loved children’s character from AA Milne.

The walls of the exhibition are also lined with scores of ink and pencil drawings of the characters and settings by EH Shepard.

The exhibition has been designed by Tom Piper, the theatre designer who created the installation of thousands of ceramic poppies made by the artist Paul Cummins, which filled the moat of the Tower of London to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War I.

Merchandise on display includes toys and books of the wisdom of Pooh, plus a hand-painted Christopher Robin and Friends china tea set presented to the baby Princess Elizabeth in 1926.
