A new exhibition at Hull’s Maritime Museum dedicated to illustrator Nick Sharratt saw over 1,000 people visit on the first day alone.

Opening on October 17, it has attracted more than 8,500 visitors in its first 12 days.

Family entertainment provided during the half-term break, such as such as badge making, a large white board drawing wall and a range of competitions, helped boost daily visitor figures. Nick also stopped by for a book signing.

‘Pirates, Pants and Wellyphants’ features a selection of the illustrator’s original artworks, college sketchbooks, school reports and treasured childhood books.

Nick is best known for creating the much-loved character Tracy Beaker featured in Jacqueline Wilson’s books.

He is also an author. His books include ‘Shark in the Park’ and ‘Vikings in the Supermarket’ – and both of these and more can be found in a reading area with beanbags where families can relax and unwind.

The free exhibition will remain at the Maritime Museum until January 10.
