The Cartoon Museum needs your help

Why we need your help

With your AMAZING help we have managed to raise funds to keep The Cartoon Museum afloat and we have now RE-OPENED our doors on 17 September. We are open Thursday - Sunday - please do have a look at our website for more details. You can see our PPE and social distancing measures. We are not taking advance bookings so please do drop in to see our exhibitions. We are very grateful for your support and the cartooning community at home and abroad - for this small museum of laughter. 

In 2021 we are still budgetting for an 80% cut in visitor numbers.  Since we temporarily closed on 18 March, it has been a tricky time resulting in no income from visitor admissions, from the museum shop, events or from learning workshops. In July we were awarded £98,000 by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which will help to combat some of the immediate financial issues we face. However, we are not out of the woods yet! It is essential that we continue fundraising to secure the longer-term future of the museum, and we really need YOUR support to do that.

We have received over 420,000 visitors since 2006 and built a nationally important collection of cartoons, comics and caricatures, and a library of 18,000 comics and books - all without regular government or local authority support. Over 50,000 children and adults have attended cartooning, comic and animation workshops and the museum receives 3,000 student visits each year. 

We have a target of £150,000, and are hoping that our friends, charitable trusts and the wider public will continue to support us. The Cartoon Art Trust as a charity also qualifies for gift aid.

He doesn't know it yet, but this is my brother's Xmas present, bought in advance. Hoping he'll see the funny side.
