Paula the Polar Bear

Paula the Polar Bear, a life-sized puppet, will be roaming the streets of Margate for five weeks on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from Thursday 26th July. Thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign, through ArtFund you'll be able to come and inspire your family, and experience what it feels like to stand next to a polar bear at Turner Contemporary. 

Paula the Polar Bear will surprise visitors to Margate, and encourage thought provoking conversations about climate change and how humans can co-exist with animals.

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