A more charming and family-friendly exhibition you’d be hard pushed to find. Teddy Bear Story at Canterbury’s Beaney Institute library even comes with an added attraction on Saturday, July 5.
If you’ve been hanging on to any vintage toys and wondered whether they’re worth more than your fond memories alone, then the valuation event Teddies, Toys, Trains and Tinplate is for you.
Experts from Canterbury Auction Galleries will be in situ at the exhibition on Saturday morning to give free expert advice with a view to selling at auction.
But even if valuation isn’t for you, then don’t miss this bear-based exhibition which runs until the end of the month.
Organised by the V&A Museum of Childhood in London, it features well-known bears from folk and fairy stories, as well as from books, film and television, plus some special teddies with very personal stories to tell.
Bear Story is at the Beaney Institute, Canterbury, each day until Sunday, July 27. Entry is free with a pay-what-you-can request for donations. The toy valuation event is at the Beaney on Saturday, July 5, from 10am to 1pm. Entry is free. Call 01227 862162.
