Welcome to the Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival Website!

A unique event which 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.

    Just looked at the forecast – rain & snow!! Will the big boards still be outside?


    • Don’t panic! mainly there’s a possibility of light showers, but some sun in the afternoon. Snow, if there is any, is confined to higher ground in the West Midlands. I bet it’ll be gloriously sunny all day, so er, bring your waterproofs
