Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit in Rugby Art Gallery and Museum

Beatrix Potter's most famous character Peter Rabbit is coming to Rugby in January, through to April 2019.   He'll hop, skip and jump off the page at a wonderful interactive exhibition in RugbyPeter Rabbit Rugby Art Gallery and Museum.

The exhibition tells the story of the creation of Peter Rabbit, whose popularity transcends generations and includes original, rarely exhibited artworks and manuscripts.  It also reveals a fresh insight into the innovative way Beatrix Potter developed Peter Rabbit as a character and loveable brand.

Younger visitors will love the activity play room and can help Mrs Tiggy-Winkle hang up the laundry, plant carrots in Mr. McGregor's garden, visit Mrs. Rabbit in her burrow or curl up with one of the books in the story corner.

In addition to events at the Art Gallery and Museum, the Rugby town will be celebrating Peter's presence via a Welly Boot Trail during the February half-term and an Easter Egg Hunt at Easter. Maps will be available to pick up from Rugby Visitor Centre or to download.
