From the political comics of the Victorian era to the shenanigans of Dennis the Menace, this exhibition celebrates 150 years of Great British Comics. Children will be able to experience the printing process and create their own pages from a comic book during this exhibition. Inspired by our British Comics exhibition, you can also come and join our art workshop to discover the Pop Art techniques of Roy Lichtenstein. He was inspired by the printing process used to colourise comics in the late 19th century up to the 1950’s. This workshop will be held in May half term and is suitable for KS2+. Check our social media for more details on dates and how to book a free place on this workshop. Normal museum admission applies.
