The Tiger Who Came to Tea at Nymans 

Explore this very special teatime through extracts and illustrations from Judith Kerr’s classic story, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, on a family trail around the garden, produced in partnership with HarperCollins Publishers.  

Booking not needed. The event is free, normal admission charges apply for the venue. 
Saturday 4 May to Sunday 14 July 2024, 10am to 4:30pm. 

The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, furry, stripy tiger! In the Story Room, take a seat at Sophie’s kitchen table, play dress-up with costumes from the story or cosy up and read the book together.

During May half term, pick up a free trail sheet and see if you can spot what’s on the menu as you explore the garden. There are more tea-time fun and games in the Play Glade too.
