moominland tent

I went to Moominland this week! You can find a handy portal into it at the Southbank Centre by Waterloo. You have to book in advance as only small groups of people can go in at a time because the settings are small (because, of course, Moomins are small), & no photography was allowed, but here’s an illustrated representation of a snippet of the experience.
Tove Jansson is a hero of mine, so it was magical to get to see some of her original drawings and objects, quite apart from getting to wander through a whole variety of beautifully built rooms and experiences, which may or may not have included Snufkin’s lantern-lit tent, a leafy forest with glowing flowers and golden butterflies, and the ominous growls of the Groke.
