Tue May 21 2013
In celebration of 75 years of The Beano, the Southbank Centre is creating Beanotown – a Beano neighbourhood decked out with related memorabilia and featuring a Beano museum and social club. Housed in the Festival Village – a spacious venue under the Queen Elizabeth Hall – Beantown will host a series of events including drawing workshops led by The Beano illustrators and sessions revealing the history of Dennis the Menace's pranks complete with demonstrations. The museum will showcase an archive of comics together with the history of DC Thomson & Co's enduring characters and stories. The social club, meanwhile, offers games including Table Dennis (yes, that's table tennis) and the Beano Breville Bar serving themed food.
