Gruffalos, Dragons and Other Creatures, Discover, London

Discover Children’s Story Centre have appointed Michael Grubb Studio as the lighting design team for A World Inside A Book exhibition.

Located in Stratford, London, 12 famous books from Axel Scheffler and Julia Donaldson will be brought to life.

If you have children, or just young at heart, you will probably be well aware of The Gruffalo, The Smartest Giant In Town, Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book and Stick Man. The exhibition is open from Saturday 21 October 2017 to September 2018.

With a helping hand from Michael Grubb Studio, we’ll immerse visitors in the visual experience, as they step into and discover Julia and Axel’s magical worlds.

The landscapes will include: a town for children to feel like giants; a huge cow to feel tiny; activities with a frog, a bird, a cat, a dog and a witch. There will also be a bridge to take you over the sparkly river from Stick Man or visit the dark forest where the Gruffalo hides.

Julia Donaldson commented, ”It’s always exciting when someone takes our books in a different direction. We’ve had plays and films, and now this imaginative and interactive exhibition. I’ve visited Discover in the past and have seen how enthusiastically children react to it, so I can’t wait for the opening.”

We are also very proud to be a part of the exhibition.
