Cats on the Page

Cats and their capers are celebrated in rhymes and stories familiar to us from childhood. Whether raising a smile, solving a crime, wreaking magical havoc or even performing in theatre, cats take centre stage in this exhibition at the British Library.

Cats come to life in books, manuscripts and artwork to captivate and inspire. Meet familiar favourites including Mog, Winnie the Witch and T S Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, while making new friends from around the world. As they prowl the pages, these feline characters are sure to delight all ages – and especially anyone who loves cats!

The exhibition features a reading corner complete with books, a family trail and sound recordings.
