Do you remember your mum and dad dragging you round boring old museums? Bleugh! Well, prepare for your favourite Beano characters to shake things up as we celebrate the spirit of rebellion as only they know how, with our major new exhibition this autumn.

You will feel like you are stepping into the pages of the comic as you take a trip into Beanotown to explore how this brilliant and beloved icon of British comics has fired up successive generations to break the rules, while also discovering the artists who push the boundaries in their own original and wonderful ways.

You’ll come face-to-face with the Beano gang - including Dennis and Gnasher, Minnie the Minx, Bananaman and the Bash Street Kids – through original comic artwork and amazing artefacts, plundered from the Beano’s awesome archive.

You’ll also experience today’s greatest creative rule-breakers who revel in their own spirit of rebellion, with contributors including Simeon Barclay, Holly Hendry, Sarah Lucas, Lindsey Mendick, Hardeep Pandhal, Fourth Plinth artist Heather Phillipson, editorial cartoonist Martin Rowson, Bedwyr Williams and many more great artists to be announced.

So whether you want to be inspired by these fearless artistic mavericks, revisit a much-loved comic masterpiece from your childhood or explore the Beano’s larger-than-life characters with your own little rebels, this exhibition will prove that there really is no age limit on the art of breaking the rules
