Approaching its 14th year in 2017, The Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival is an annual event at which a small army of professional cartoonists from all over the UK and overseas meets up to draw and paint cartoons and caricatures for the general public.The event draws a huge audience every year with its centrepiece being the live drawing of enormous cartoons in Shrewsbury Town Square, along with live caricaturing by some of the UK’s top professionals. There are also a number of cartoon workshops for aspiring cartoonists and exhibitions to look at. Members of the public get to see cartoons created live, and have the unique opportunity to chat to cartoonists in person. It’s a brilliant day!
