Industry celebrates ‘magical story teller’ Raymond Briggs

“Raymond Briggs was – and still is – viewed as one of the most exceptional draughtsman and storytellers that this country has produced, with innovative journeys of both the magical and seemingly mundane, from monsters, flying snowmen and minuscule humans to heartfelt relationships, real-life war and a hard-working Father Christmas.”

The Agency is delighted at the opening of the memorial exhibition for the life and legacy of children’s author and illustrator, Raymond Briggs.

Celebrating his 60 year career the exhibition includes  100 original artworks, his own writing and drawing desk, and even a faux blue plaque referencing his commitment to practical jokes.

The exhibition – Bloomin’ Brilliant: The Life and Work of Raymond Briggs – is showing unseen artwork for FATHER CHRISTMAS GOES ON HOLIDAY, alongside other titles including THE SNOWMAN, FUNGUS THE BOGEYMAN and WHEN THE WIND BLOWS, and will run until October 2024.

The Estate of Raymond Briggs is represented by The Agency.
