The Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival 2010 takes place this coming weekend (22nd - 25th April) and this year's theme is Magic, Myth and Mystery.
This wonderful Festival offers unique opportunities to see artists at work: 20 of them on huge boards in The Square during the weekend, others drawing caricatures and some running cartoon workshops for all ages.
Highlights of the event include the Festival themed exhibition at Bear Steps Gallery featuring new cartoon originals, and prints, on the theme of Magic, Myth and Mystery. This is a selling exhibition and a great opportunity to buy work by some of the UK's top cartoonists.
2010 also sees exhibitions of Greek and Australian cartoons at Theatre Severn.
