My Great Orchestral Adventure

This family-friendly concert should have something for everyone given the genre spanning music it boasts. The 'Star Wars' theme, 'Ride of the Valkyries' and 'We're Going On a Bear Hunt' all feature in the interactive show which allows children to vote on what happens next during the journey through sound.

Cartoon Museum

On the ground floor of the Cartoon Museum - a transformed former dairy - the cartoons are displayed chronologically, starting with the early eighteenth-century when high-society types back from the Grand Tour introduced the Italian practice of the caricatura to polite society. From Hogarth the displays move on to British cartooning's 'golden age' (1770-1830). 'Modern times' covers political wartime cartoons and social commentary produced between 1914 and 1961. The 'new satire' section – works published from 1961 onwards – includes Ralph Steadman, Steve Bell, Dave Brown, Matt and others. Downstairs the artists' names are immediately recognisable; upstairs – where comic strip art from 2000AD, the Dandy and the Beano is displayed – is much more about the characters portrayed: Rupert the Bear, Dan Dare, Judge Dredd et al. The excellent shop is recommended, as is the library where – by appointment – you can search the catalogue of some 3,000 books. Children's animation workshops are held during school holidays.
