Pimlico Exhibition – THE ART OF WAR HORSE

To commemorate the centenary of World War I a unique exhibition celebrating the dramatisation of Michael Morpurgo’s book War Horse “THE ART OF WAR HORSE” is being held at 22 Bury Street, St. James’s, SW1Y 6AL ( a short walk from Pimlico Flats) until 30th August. Entry is free.

The book was first published in 1982 and recently this wartime tale has become an international phenomenon. The stage play, launched at The National Theatre in 2007, has become one of the greatest British productions and seen by over 3 million people worldwide. Theatre designer Rae Smith is the artistic mastermind who brought this to life on stage, and for which she won both the US Tony Award and the British Olivier Award, and the exhibition shows Rae’s original theatre, costume and scenic artwork. On show will be a selection of equine drawings of the horse puppets so vividly created by Handspring Puppet Company, as well as powerful Vorticist-inspired depictions of battle-torn France.


The play currently running in London’s West End:
