Tigers go wild at King’s Lynn Museum as a new talk is announced

A museum is set to celebrate the final week of its popular winter exhibition.

Lynn Museum is putting on a brand-new afternoon talk for adults to celebrate its exhibition of The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

On Friday at 2pm, guest speaker Barbara Meyer (from Big Cat and Nature Photography) will be discussing one of the most iconic species in the world – tigers.

All remaining subspecies of tiger are classified as either endangered or critically endangered.

Over the last few years there has been some good news, but also further evidence of the struggle the big cats face to survive extinction.

This talk will discuss the different subspecies, where they live, and what their survival chances are – plus what we can do to help.

Tickets cost £2 per person, but are free for Norfolk Museums pass holders.

Booking is recommended as seating is limited and talks last approximately one hour.

The ‘Tigers in the Wild’ talk starts a new series of afternoon speaking sessions at Lynn Museum for 2024 and tickets for this – as well as other upcoming events – are available via Art Tickets: norfolk-museums.arttickets.org.uk/lynn-museum

The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a touring exhibition developed by Seven Stories through the National Centre for Children's Books.

The display celebrates the life and work of children’s book author-illustrator Judith Kerr, featuring copies of her original artwork, plus Sophie’s kitchen complete with a life-size tiger!

General admission to the exhibition is free. The last chance to see The Tiger Who Came to Tea is this Saturday.
