Penguin Ventures Brings Flower Fairies to Life

Penguin Ventures has partnered with The Garden Museum and Hillier Gardens to bring Flower Fairies to life this summer via fun-filled family events.

Cicely Mary Barker’s illustrations will be exhibited at The Garden Museum on Aug. 8 – Sep. 30. The Flower Fairies: Botanical Magic at the Garden Museum exhibit will feature original illustrations for more than 40 of Barker’s Flower Fairies designs and will also include previously unseen sketchbooks and drawings.

Younger visitors can dress up in fairy costumes and participate in cookery workshops. For more information, visit

The Hillier Gardens in Hampshire will host The Flower Fairies Garden Trail, an interactive trail inspired by Barker’s art that runs through Sept. 3. For more information, visit
