Elmer Family Day

Family Fun at Gateshead Library

Elmer remains one of the most iconic and widely read children’s book series, written and illustrated by celebrated children’s author and artist David McKee. In 2019 we celebrate Elmer’s 30th birthday with a free creative family day!

The event is free - just drop in across the day.

For more information on Elmer Day: 0191 433 8420 or email: gatesheadlive@gateshead.gov.uk.

The day will include activities from Artventurers, free face painting and ele-fantastic crafting.

You will also be able to see and have your photo taken with one of the Elmer Sculptures ahead of this Summer’s Elmer’s Great North Parade which will run from August – November across Tyne and Wear featuring over 70 individually designed elephants.

Join the herd!
