Details

Well-Loved Tales: Stories from a Ladybird Childhood is based on a series of 27 books, which began in 1964 with the publication of Cinderella. Charnwood Museum has created a wonderful exhibition based on 15 of those evocative titles, including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, The Elves & the Shoemaker, Jack & the Beanstalk and Billy Goats Gruff.

The exhibition features the original Ladybird books and uses them as the inspiration for imaginative displays using objects from the extensive Leicestershire Museums collection.
Visitors will also be able to get more involved with the magical Ladybird world by dressing up, having a photo opportunity in Rapunzel’s tower and the Wicked Queen’s mirror on the wall, trip trapping over the Troll’s bridge or having a picnic in the park outside the museum, where three Ladybird-themed benches have been installed. There will also be storytelling sessions at selected times.
