Simon Postgate: "Noggin the Nog" Animation, Ideas and Magic. Simon Postgate was growing up at the time of the making of many of his father Oliver Postgate's films for children's television.

Simon gives a talk with images and film clips, looking back at the animation process, the ideas and results of this atmospheric and exciting programme. He spent some of the time peeping over the back of the sofa at the Ice Dragon, a giant Walrus rearing up from the sea or the terrible antics of Nogbad the Bad.

Things To Do In London If You Like Comics - December 2022

This Exhibition is a WORK EVENT! until April 16th 2023, The Cartoon Museum, Wells Street, Noho.
Since taking office, Boris has been THE MOST cartooned politician in the history of our country. To celebrate – or mourn that fact depending on where you fall – The Cartoon Museum has collected a diverse selection of political cartoons detailing the different phases of his career and the wider societal impact on Britain over the last four years. From the 2019 Election to Brexit to Covid (and Partygate) to Ukraine and finally his early exit from office. The nation's favourite newspaper cartoonists have provided excellent work the Museum is excited to add to their collection. But a public call-out was also made to try and contact some of the more marginalised voices in cartoon and comic art. No matter the race, orientation or political affiliation, cartoonists of all creeds have had LOTS to say about Boris – good and bad – these last few years and The Cartoon Museum wants to show it all.
