Tate Modern Workshop

Urban jungle with illustrator Vicky Woodgate

Join us for an afternoon of animal games and a drawing workshop to discover the wild side of cities around the world

Did you know that there are flying squirrels in the heart of New York City? Or that wild boar roam the streets of Berlin? From bats in air-conditioning vents, to snakes in the sewers, each city is a colourful mix of everyday sightings and one-off stories you wouldn't believe.

Come and find out more amazing facts, discover what lives in London, join in with quizzes and drawing activities. Then take away your own map of London and add your own animal sightings.

This event is suitable for those aged 5 and up.
