Visit the beautiful village of Ditchling this summer and enjoy the work of one of the country's most celebrated illustrators John Vernon Lord, alongside work for children by his students and contemporaries including Quentin Blake, Raymond Briggs, Helen Oxenbury, Peter Bailey, Jane Hissey and Chris Riddell.

Lord has illustrated many classics of English literature including the work of Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Aesop’s fables and James Joyce and is regarded as a pillar of the local arts community in Ditchling where he has lived since the 1970s. Also an author in his own right, Lord has written and illustrated a number of children’s books including The Giant Jam Sandwich (1972), which has since become a modern classic.

Highlights of the exhibition will include never-before-seen drafts of The Giant Jam Sandwich, alongside an interactive installation of a giant jam sandwich created by artist and Lord’s former student Emma Carlow, offering visitors the chance to experience moments from the well known classic!

  • Art, Heritage

It will bring back a thousand memories for adults and inspire a whole new generation of illustrators!
