Summer Seaside Fun at Littlehampton Museum
Littlehampton Museum, which is a FREE attraction, has lots of things for families to see and do this summer. Alongside the regular galleries and FREE family trails, the summer exhibition, “Oh Mr McGill!” allows a peep at the comic world of seaside postcards.
Celebrating Donald McGill, the illustrator whose comic postcards (saucy and otherwise!) are forever linked with the Great British Seaside Holiday, the exhibition features cards from the Museum’s collection, alongside original McGill artwork donated by former local resident and national comic treasure Ronnie Barker. Visitors can explore how the drawings were turned into postcards using printing plates, and discover which card holds the world record for selling the most copies - all six million of them. The exhibition also contains a craft table, postcard puzzles and some super fun selfie opportunities.
This exhibition is presented in association with The Fedora Group and with support from Heritage Lottery Fund.
Associated with this exhibition there are FREE workshops taking place over the summer including postcard printing and Punch and Judy shows. Check out the Museum’s website for more details www.littlehamptonmuseum.co.uk
