An Evening with Dame Lynley Dodd


Meet the esteemed Dame Lynley, accompanied by the exhibition curator, Penelope Jackson at our official opening of The Lynley Dodd Story.

Enjoy a drink and a bite to eat on arrival and take a sneak peek at the exhibition, which will open to the public the following day.

Hear Dame Lynley tell her inspiring story: her life at home in the 1980s with young children, the journey of a hobby that developed into a professional career, and how she developed her much loved characters like Hairy Maclary, Slinky Malinki and Schnitzel von Krumm.

Be sure to bring along your favourite book to be signed (one book per person).
