“Her Maj” — 60 years of portraits of the Queen in cartoons27 FebruaryThe Cartoon Museum will be marking the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a special exhibition of portraits drawn during the last 60 years. Some are affectionate, some are teasing, and some are totally unflattering, but their combined might showcase how her image has changed down the decades, and explores how the monarch’s image was taboo in cartoons even as late as the 1950s.

“Dickens and London” exhibition, at the Museum of London27 FebruaryThe Museum of London will be marking the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ birth by putting on a major new exhibition, taking you on a journey through Victorian London to discover the city that inspired his writings.
