Katie Morag & Mairi Hedderwick

11 May – 18 Jun 2015

In collaboration with Move on Up productions, the BBC, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Mairi Hedderwick herself, An Lanntair are delighted to open a major exhibition in Stornoway celebrating her iconic character Katie Morag McColl. First published in 1984 and now numbering 14 books, the little girl with the red hair in the white jumper and wellies has been a children‘s favourite for 30 years.
Along with original artwork, working drawings and designs and the story
of the fi lming, the centrepiece of the exhibition will be the original sets from
the hugely successful CBeebies television series. Re-assembled for the fi rst time,
the installation completes the experience and lets visitors literally step into the
world of Katie Morag and her life on the Isle of Struay.
