BRIGHTON FRINGE – Jane Hissey’s Bears Books and Beyond

This is an amazing opportunity to spend the afternoon with Jane Hissey, the much loved author and illustrator of over 25 ‘Old Bear’ books and creator of the BAFTA award-winning TV series; ‘Old Bear Stories.’

At this event, within the magical setting of Brighton Toy and Model Museum, Jane will introduce her own original toy characters, including Old Bear himself. She will show some of her original artwork and talk about her 30 years of writing and illustrating for children. She will also explain how the books were brought to the screen with stop-frame model animation, a rare opportunity to see some of the original models from the television series. There will be an opportunity to ask questions over a cup of tea/ coffee and cake and anyone who wishes to, can draw their own favourite toy with Jane Hissey’s guidance.

Tickets £10 per child, 1 accompanying adult free, £5 each additional accompanying adult. Spaces are limited and must be booked and paid for in advance – either cash, credit cards or cheques made payable to ‘Brighton and Toy and Model Museum’.
