Event details‌‌

To mark the 30th Anniversary of the takeover of Rowntree plc by Nestlé, The Rowntree Society presents an exhibition of cartoons as they appeared in newspapers in 1988. Featuring the work of many prominent cartoonists including Giles, JAK and Kipper Williams, the exhibition tells the story of the days between April and June 1988 in a succinct, fascinating - and usually amusing - way.
