Grin and bear it

Shrewsbury’s Museum and Art Galley is playing host to some furry friends this coming spring. ‘Bears’, which runs from Sunday 16 Feb until Sunday 28 April, includes family events, shows, and readings. The main exhibition opens onto a stylised glade with large wooden illustrations from bear-focused books dotted among the trees – follow the trail of paw prints that guide you through the different sections of the installation. Children are invited to bring their special bears to take on a tour of the gallery with them – but there are plenty of bears to borrow in the glade. You can also take part in Bag of Bears, a fun interactive workshop for younger children.

Over February half term, visitors are encouraged to bring their own baskets or purchase food from the Museum’s café, Stop, and enjoy an indoor Teddy Bears’ Picnic or enjoy a retelling of the classic We’re Going on a Bear Hunt on Tuesday 19 or Thursday 21 February. To reserve your place, call 01743 248885 or email
