British cartoon & comic art from the 18th century to the present day

Volunteer banner

"It’s no great exaggeration to say that I haven’t worked anywhere quite so satisfying as here, which is faintly depressing for a man in his thirties."

"The people I meet at the Cartoon Museum make it a treat for me to come in and the artwork I see first-hand is a privilege."

·         Packing up and labelling of boxes
