Michael Rosen Exhibition

Michael Grubb Studio has been appointed (once again) by Discover Children’s Story Centre – this time to work on the new Michael Rosen’s Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake and Bad Things exhibition.

Children can step inside a huge chocolate cake, discover a secret larder, swishy swashy their way through a Bear Hunt and explore Bad Things in the Dread Shed. The exhibition will feature hidden rooms where clues can be found that reveal the inspiration behind Michael’s writing including his Grandparents’ sitting room and his classroom. Younger children will be able to participate in Bear Hunt trail whilst older children can go on a fun fact finding mission and create poems of their own to takeaway.

Discover’s Joint Chief Executive, Sally Goldsworthy said, ‘We are very excited to announce this latest exhibition made in collaboration Michael Rosen. Michael has so much energy and passion for education, creativity and writing that he is incredibly inspiring to work with.’

Award winning author Michael Rosen said ‘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 room that families and schools will be able to explore. I am so looking forward to it.’

Michael Grubb Studio will be providing full lighting design services for the exhibition, from concept through to commissioning on site. Creative Director, Michael Grubb said “We are delighted to be involved again with Discover. We love collaborating with them on lighting design ideas and they really make us feel part of the Discover family”.

Discover’s new interactive exhibition for families Michael Rosen’s Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake and Bad Things opens on 16 October 2015.
