Welcome to the Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival Website!

It’s coming… buckle up!



Planning is well underway and details will be confirmed shortly.



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. There are also cartoon workshops for aspiring cartoonists and exhibitions of themed cartoons.

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!

    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
