Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival Returns for 2020!

Who’s ready for some cartoons?
We are pleased to announce that Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival makes a return of sorts for 2020!

Our originally planned exhibition at the Bear Steps Gallery will now be held in October from the 19th-31st, open from 10am-4pm each day.  ‘No-one Saw it Coming’  will show cartoons on our original 2020 theme of ‘Vision’, augmented by our Cartoonists’ take on the unprecedented events of the year. Life in lockdown, coronavirus, the great toilet roll hoard… dare we mention the horrors of home schooling?

Mayor of Shrewsbury Philip Gillam runs through the delights on offer in this video welcome… we hope you can come and join us for a socially distanced smile.

Plans are underway for a hopefully more usual Cartoon Festival in 2021..

Enquiries to: shrewsburycartoonfestival@gmail.com or via our social media.
