Celebrate the 80th birthday of Beano this summer in the world’s capital of comics.

This exhibition, in a special collaboration with DC Thomson’s Beano Studios, is a fun and rebellious look at Beano in the city it was created.

There is a special focus on the Bash Street Kids with their characteristic slapstick humour, and the artists and writers who influenced the look and content of Beano throughout the years.

Alongside is an illustration of how a comic is put together and a glance at the eclectic mix of Beano merchandise that has hit the shelves over the past 80 years.

Highlights include a rare first edition Beano, traditional linotype machine and, of course, much loved Dennis the Menace fan club memorabilia.
