30 Years of Willy the Wimp by Anthony Browne

This September we celebrate 30 years of Anthony Browne's most beloved character Willy the Wimp. We are thrilled to be exhibiting original watercolour Willy the Wimp artwork here in the gallery alongside other fantastic original artwork including the original front cover artwork for the renowned Gorilla. (Pictured below) The exhibition continues until the 20th of September 2014, and will then go on to be a highlight in our Winter Show in November.
