Want to splash splosh your way through a river, stumble trip through a forest and crawl and tiptoe your way into a bear cave on your very own Bear Hunt? Check out poet Michael Rosen’s new exhibition at The Discover Children’s Story Centre in Stratford.

Explore hidden rooms and find clues that reveal the inspiration behind Michael’s writing.  See your face on TV in his Grandparents’ sitting room and scribble on the chalkboard in his old school classroom, where you’ll also find fun rhythm and word games that will help you create your own poem to take home.

Michael Rosen: “This exhibition is one of the most exciting things to have happened in my writing career. I am someone who has found a way of writing that is often about digging up stuff to do with my past and here is Discover making that into a giant exhibition that families and schools will be able to explore. Just as exciting for me, as someone who works with children and students, is the idea that this exhibition will act as a springboard for children, teachers and parents to talk together about things that they remember or think up, and this, I hope, will turn into writing and performing new poems and stories.”

The amazing Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake and Bad Things exhibition is running at Discover until 10 April, before it goes on a UK tour! Find out about tickets, tour dates and upcoming locations on the Discover website.
