Henley Regatta cartoon exhibition
We can report that the cartoon exhibition organised by the PCO for this year’s Henley Royal Regatta was a big success.

Many revellers mentioned how much they enjoyed the themed cartoons, which where shown alongside a more traditional display of rowing paintings and prints. Around a third of the cartoons on show were sold.

Clive Goddard, who was instrumental in organising the event, tells us that he hopes the PCO will be able to do the same thing at Henley next year.

The organisation is also hoping to bring themed exhibitions to other key events in next year’s social calendar: perhaps tennis cartoons for Wimbledon, floral cartoons for the Chelsea Flower Show, or music cartoons for the Proms.

If you are involved with an event and think a themed cartoon exhibition would be a great addition, get in touch with the PCO here

    By Jove, those chaps really do wear boaters. And Blazers. And fascinators.

  2. Apparently, Goddard’s fascinator was so, erm, fascinating, the local constabulary were called.
