The Cartoon Museum needs your help

Why we need your help

The museum closed on March 18, resulting in no income from visitor admissions, from the museum shop, events or from learning workshops.  It may take time on re-opening for our visitors to return: seniors (our super adults !) and tourists, children, student and school visits.  We have received over 420,000 visitors and built a nationally important collection of 4,300 cartoons, comics and caricatures, and a library of 18,000 comics and books -all without 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 uploaded and circulated our learning materials as a free downloadable resource for families to use at home and uploaded our current show, Dear Mr. Poole, at www.cartoonmuseum.org  We do, however, have continuing unavoidable expenditure and are very concerned about our ability to survive the next six months.

We need to raise £50,000 from our friends and the wider public. The Cartoon Art Trust as a charity also qualifies for gift aid.

As a life long Private Eye fan and aspiring 'grumpy cartoonist', I had the most wonderful day when I visited from Newcastle last year. I love your museum and I cant wait to come back. Keep safe, chaps. Bridie

Great museum. I visited it last year and wrote a news article about it for Stripschrift, a Dutch comic information magazine. Hopefully a lot of (Dutch) visitors will be visiting after re-opening.
