From Rags To Witches: The Grim Tale Of Children's Stories

At Weston Gallery


Once upon a time, fairy tales were not for children. From a bloodthirsty birth in a sinister European forest, to benign bedtime tales where “Children with their Milk
are fed with the Tales of Witches, Hobgoblins, Prophecies and Miracles” this exhibition traces the development of children’s literature through the generations.

Using original archives and rare books from Manuscripts & Special Collections, From Rags to Witches explores a range of children’s literature, from the beloved to the forgotten tales that never got a happily ever after.
