Wed, 2 Nov 2016, 10:30 – Sat, 25 Feb 2017, 17:30 GMT
2016 was not only the year of Brexit, the most important and contentious political event in Britain for decades. It was also the year of Trump and a tempestuous US presidential campaign, the European migrant crisis, NHS junior doctors’ strikes, an ongoing terror threat from ISIS in Europe, turmoil in the Labour party, the Rio Olympics, the ascension to power of Theresa May and the rise (and fall, and rise) of Boris Johnson. In the cartoon exhibition of Britain’s Best Political Cartoons 2016, all these news events and many more receive the satirical treatment of our finest cartoonists. This result is a hilarious and razor-sharp exhibition to a momentous and tumultuous year.
