CARTOON FESTIVAL POSTPONED – Visit our virtual Cartoon Festival

Thanks to Glenn Marshall and the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation we present our virtual Cartoon Festival with a selection of cartoons on the theme of ‘Vision’ which were submitted to the exhibition. You can see them here.

Stay safe during the present situation. We will be back!

James-Griffiths-01-768x761SHREWSBURY CARTOON FESTIVAL TO BE POSTPONED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

The Management Committee of Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival has met to consider the implications of the Coronavirus outbreak for this year’s event. Although the Government has not imposed restrictions on events of this kind at present the Committee anticipates that due to the spread of the virus outbreak these could be introduced before the Festival takes place in mid to late April. The decision has been taken to postpone the Festival from next month to later in the year. The situation will be monitored and an announcement about a new date will be made in the future.

The Committee takes its responsibilities for the care of its visitors, cartoonists and volunteers very seriously and does not wish to expose them to the potential risks that the virus presents. While there will be a short-term effect on the local economy from the postponement of next month’s Festival it is hoped that the event will be able to return later in the year with its usual programme of exhibitions, workshops and talks.

Further updates will be posted on the Festival website at www.shrewsburycartoonfestival.org and social media.

    Well even as we mop up the gravy from 2017 & our travelling fast drawn food & ink kiosk we gird our aprons for the year ahead.
    2018’s events will mark our 15th year of this wholesome silliness.
    Themes are yet to be decided.
    Cartoonists are reserving the date:
    April 21st 2018

      Hi dear colleagues,

      here I send you some cartoons about animals, as you asked me if I could collaborate with some works. It would be fine if you tell me, you have well received the mail and the cartoons.

      Hope you enjoy the festival, it was very nice some years ago!!!

      Best regards,
