Eastbourne will be much more bracing when a gallery of salty and saucy imagery opens its doors this June.
Tim Benson, who previously ran the Bloomsbury-based Political Cartoon Gallery, will reopen the gallery in premises in the East Sussex town this summer.
Dr Benson plans to host regular exhibitions of cartoon art as well as a cafe. Plans are afoot for an opening exhibition by a leading British cartoonist and the publication of a full colour anthology of his work.
The cafe will also host a mural made by leading cartoonists carrying a suitable seaside theme and there will be a permanent exhibition of some iconic cartoons from the 20th Century.
More news here when we get it.
