Events for the 2019 Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival can be found on the What’s on page so take a look! Are you following us on twitter, Facebook or instagram?
Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival brings a small army of professional cartoonists from all over the UK and overseas to draw for the public. The event draws a huge audience every year with live drawing of giant cartoons in Shrewsbury Town Square as its centrepiece, alongside live caricaturing by some of the UK’s top professionals. There are also cartoon workshops for aspiring cartoonists and exhibitions of themed cartoons. All this brings people to the town from near and far; last year people came from Leicester, Swindon, Chester, Wigan, Newark and even Taiwan!
The festival presents a unique opportunity for the public see cartoonists at work, meet them in person and learn some tricks of the trade. It’s a brilliant day of cartoon fun!
