“Her Maj” — 60 years of portraits of the Queen in cartoons24 FebruaryThe Cartoon Museum will be marking the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a special exhibition of portraits drawn during the last 60 years.

David Shrigley: Brain Activity24 FebruaryDavid Shrigley is best known for his witty and wry observations on everyday life.

It will be divided into broad themes from particular periods.
