Suitable for all ages to enjoy, The Magical World of William Simmonds: Puppets and Paintings gives visitors the chance to discover everything from the circus to an enchanting woodland, by delving inside the imagination of Simmonds through his work.

A rare chance to see hidden gems from Simmonds, the exhibition will also feature work from artists of the time, creating an insight into Gloucester’s artistic community back in the 20th century.
