Wow! Said the Owl

7 January – 7 March

Join us for this family friendly exhibition!

This exhibition is based on the much-loved children’s book, Wow! Said the Owl by Tim Hopgood.

The exhibition has been specially designed to appeal to families and especially under five-year olds, with lots of sensory and interactive elements.

In the book, a little owl stays awake during the day for the first time and is amazed by all the colours she sees, ‘Wow! Said the Owl as white fluffy clouds floated across a bright blue sky’.

The exhibition will give children the same sense of wonder and amazement by introducing them to colours and inviting them to be creative by playing with shapes, puppets, costumes and drawing.

To help bring the story to life, why not try our Learning Pack? Perfect for any curious little owls!

Wow! Said the Owl will go on display in The Point’s gallery space. Entry to the gallery is free. 

School/group visits to our gallery are welcomed.

This exciting exhibition has been made possible with generous support from Arts Council England and Macmillan Children’s Books.

It will be touring around Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire until 2021.

Tim Hopgood’s Wow! Said the Owl book is published by Macmillan Children’s Books.
