Play time at the Herbert

The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in Coventry will be launching a free exhibition this summer that will capture the attention of both children and adults.

Entitled ‘Play’, the exhibition will feature a host of nostalgic and contemporary objects – from Lego to loom bands, and from early Monopoly to Meccano.

Another exhibition will run alongside Play that focuses on local games company Rare – the first major exhibition based on a video game developer.

Frankie Ranford, Cultural and Creative Director of Culture Coventry, said:

The exhibition features some wonderful exhibits. Some date back 2,000 years while we have some that have been very popular only recently, such as fidget spinners and slime!
