Meanwhile, back down on the Southbank in London's fashionable Southwark (there's a phrase that's new for this Century, eh Baby Boomers?) the Neighbourhood Festival's BEANOTOWN exhibit is drawing the crowds (pun strictly accidental) in it's first week. Here's a picture of the building with it's Beano bus mural as drawn by, er, me. It's got everything for kids of all ages, and a treasure trove of relics of the past and exciting new developments for the future. So, if you live in or near the great metropolis, hurry across to the Southbank, near the Festival Hall and BFI (nearest tube Waterloo, bus from Euston, 68, from Tower, RV1) and soak up the Beano atmosphere from now until the end of the summer! Tell 'em I sent you!
And, while there, remember to pick up London's famous what's on guide, Time Out.
