FRI 11 - SUN 13 MAY 2018
The Inking Woman, Maidstone Museums, Sat 5 May – Sun 24 June
The largest exhibition of its kind, so far, demonstrates that women have always had a uniquely perceptive view of the world and a wicked sense of humour to accompany it. This exhibition proudly presents the work of over one hundred British Cartoon and Comic Artists, to celebrate a rich plethora of women’s wit and insight, across some 250 years. Prints from the 18th century, caricatures, jokes, editorial and strip cartoons, postcards, comics, graphic novels and digital comics will all be on display, so go, have a chuckle and come away feeling empowered.
Motors by the Moat, Leeds Castle, Sat 12 & Sun 13 May
One for car enthusiasts and day-trippers alike, Motors on the Moat is the perfect excuse to get up close to a grand selection of classic cars and high-performance cars from all around the world. The display will take place on the castle lawns, with the most glorious and fitting background of the castle and moat behind. I just hope all the hand breaks work!
