This exhibition will take visitors on a fun, interactive journey showcasing memorabilia from some of TV's most iconic shows. There will also be fun interactive exhibits demonstrating how our most loved characters were brought to life.

Visitors will begin their journey by exploring how pre-historic man may have used cave paintings to create the first ever animated characters. Then moving onto learn how simple puppets like Muffin the Mule and Sooty & Sweep were brought to life on screen.

Other characters and shows covered in the exhibition include Clangers, The Wombles, Trumpton, Bagpuss, Magic Roundabout and Danger Mouse.

In the animation studio there will be the chance to see how award-winning UK studio Aardman Animations brought characters like Wallace & Gromit to life, there’s even the opportunity for visitors to create their own animated character.

Finally in the live action studios visitors can have a go at presenting or directing a TV show, or step into the green screen studio and experience a dive underwater with a giant turtle or flying a broomstick over Beachy Head.
