Rupert Bear Centenary Exhibition

20 August @ 10:00 am - 30 October @ 4:00 pm


Since Rupert missed his centenary birthday at The Beaney in 2020 we thought we would invite him to share his with The Beaney’s 10 year anniversary in 2022!

You will get the opportunity to be immersed into magical seasonal landscapes, enjoy a story corner, play interactive games and create your own story as well as engaging with many original collections and artworks from the museum’s collection (some of which have never been on display before) and learn more about Canterbury’s Mary Tourtel, the creator of Rupert Bear.

Rupert activity bags are also available! (at a charge).

Join The Beaney for this interactive exhibition which will celebrate 102 years of Rupert, linking to the museum’s varied collection of Rupert Bear objects and artworks.
