Paula is coming to Margate: dates announced!


Thanks to your generous support, Paula the Polar Bear will be roaming the streets of Margate for five weeks on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from Thursday 26th July 2018.

She was delivered yesterday and is now safely settled at Turner Contemporary, ready for her public appearances!

This spectacle will bring the gallery’s summer exhibition Animals & Us to the streets of Margate to encourage thought provoking conversations about climate change and how humans can co-exist with animals – and we could not have done this without you! Locals and tourists will be able to experience what it feels like to stand next to a polar bear.

Paula the Polar will appear at Turner Contemporary at 11am, 11.30am, 12pm, 12.30pm, 2pm, 2.30pm, 3pm, 3.30pm and 4pm, on the following dates:
