The exhibition features a collection of original artwork from Where’s Spot? and other popular Spot books including Spot Goes to the Farm and Spot’s Birthday Party.

Information panels follow the history of Spot and how he became one of the best-loved children’s characters of all time. There will be activities for under fives.

The exhibition starts on Saturday and runs until January 14.
