In 2014 a small expeditionary force of cartoonists established a beachhead in Southport’s main shopping precinct from where they proceeded to engage the public with Big Board cartooning and caricaturing. This mini ‘Shrewsbury’ took place as part of the Southport Comedy Festival and turned out to be a big success.
This coming Saturday, May 7th, seven of us, Paul Hardman (organiser), Brighty, Pete Dredge, Noel Ford, Tim Harries, Rich Skipworth and Chris Williams will be doing a similar thing in the same place between 10.30am and 4.00pm as part of the Southport Festival. Big Boards will be drawn, caricatures will be crafted and, manpower and time allowing, a little cartoon busking will be added to the mix. Do come along if you can!
