Welcome to the Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival Website and Blog!

Now coming up to its 13th year, 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 about 15 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 to take part in and exhibitions to look at.  Members of the public get to see cartoons being created live, and have the opportunity to chat to the cartoonists in person. It’s a brilliant day with loads of cartoonists being able to meet up as well as show off their skills to an admiring public.homepage-composite

    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
