Fairy Tales

Girls are into fairies in a big way. So here's a half-term treat for them. Yes, I know it's sexist, but so are healthy children. They are not politically correct organisms. London's V&A Museum has three fairy exhibitions currently on show. A Fairyland of Flowers: Beatrix Potter and Cicely Mary Barker is in Room 102 until 14 June, admission free. The artists' combination of botanical accuracy and imagination is still compelling. In the same room and also free is Capturing the Imagination: British Fairy-tale Illustrations 1860-1940, which includes illustrations by Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac. This exhibition continues until 12 June. The third display is 'All the better to see you with my dear': Fairy Tales & Enchantments in the Sackler Centre Entrance until 28 February.
