Live & Large in the Square!
Saturday 22nd April 2017
Each year we have a grand and magnificent array of cartoonists producing Big Board cartoons live in the Town Square, on the theme of the festival. The 2017 theme is to be ‘Food and Drink’ and the date is Saturday 22nd April.
What’s a Big Board Cartoon? It roughly 8ft x 4ft, drawn by hand onto as sheet of our special canvas which is affixed to an A-framed board. One cartoonist works on either side of the board. Pausing only for sustinance and quick slurps of coffee, our cartoonists slave away to create cartoon magnificence and comedy gold right before your eyes! You can talk to them too. They’re all very friendly and quite happy to natter about their work. They don’t normally get released into the wild like this so welcome the chance to interact with an adoring public.
Did you know the big board cartoons can be purchased?! Each of the works are available and offer a rare chance to own a very special piece of cartoon art . If you have a favourite from a previous year why not contact us to enquire?
