The Cartoonist Pub to close @ procartoonists.org

One-time Fleet Street Institution The Cartoonist pub is to close early in 2013.

Once part of the thriving print industry culture in the area, the pub is to be demolished as a part of a redevelopment at New Street Square and Shoe Lane.

The Cartoonist had a long association with the trade and its associated social organisations, theĀ Cartoonists Club of Great Britain, the British Cartoonists’ Association and ourselves in the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation.

We all say, if you know of another public house that would like to be associated with our trade, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Thanks to Mike Turner, former chair of the CCGB and Procartoonists member for his knowledge of the story. If you have memories you would like to share of the pub, see you in the comments.
