Description

Moyse’s Hall Museum is proud to present a display of work by one of the nation’s favourite illustrators, co-curated with his team.

Since 2005, Quentin Blake’s drawings for hospitals and healthcare settings have become a significant part of his work. Because of their clinical function, many of the spaces are not easily accessible to visitors, so relatively few people – only patients and hospital staff – may get the chance to see them.

Created in Quentin Blake’s instantly recognisable style, the drawings provide something for everyone. With swimming babies, helpful dragons, treetop adventures, and poignant landscapes, there are plenty of unexpected delights to discover in Quentin Blake’s Illustrated Hospital.

Book online or check in at the front desk.
