The 2022 Festival

2022 will be the nineteenth Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival, and we hope this time around it can be enjoyed in the same fashion as our pre-pandemic events!

The three-week-long festival exhibition will take place in Shrewsbury over the Easter period, 11th-30th April.

The event is organised by the Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival voluntary team with support from the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation. Our aim is to showcase as many cartoonists as possible and bring the art form to the broader public attention. It’s an opportunity to see and buy quality cartoon artwork!


The theme for 2022 is “Watch and Learn”, encouraging words, or the famous last ones before disaster strikes…?
