Testimonials from our exhibition hosts

"We were delighted with Quentin Blake: Inside Stories. The exhibition received over 12,000 visitors – double the number of visitors we would normally expect to the gallery at this time, which resulted in better than expected Annual Pass sales for this period – and we were able to deliver some very popular learning events based around the exhibition."

"Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales was thrilled to be able to show the exhibition Quentin Blake: Inside Stories in 2016 as part of a programme of celebrations to mark the centenary of the birth of Roald Dahl in Cardiff.  The exhibition proved to be extremely popular with visitors and school groups.  There were 66,641 visits to the exhibition with a daily average of 600 visitors and a visitor conversion rate of 35%, making it one of the most successful we have held in the exhibition space in which it was shown.  Our Learning team developed fantastic resource material for school visits, which were fully booked.   It was a pleasure to work with the House of Illustration team to develop the exhibition to suit our space and our visitors."

"Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery in Carlisle was privileged to be the first venue on the tour of House of Illustration's beautiful 'The BFG in Pictures' exhibition. The exhibition attracted almost 6000 visitors, who were thrilled by the chance to see the artworks in Carlisle and inspired to take part in a range of fun hands-on family events. The exhibition also provided a brilliant opportunity for our education team to create a fantastic literacy and storytelling session for local primary school children. One of the school children who took part in the sessions described it as the 'best day ever'"
