When It's OK To Laugh At Homeless People

An exhibition of doodles from The Pavement - a free monthly magazine for homeless people - is on show at the Cartoon Museum.

The Pavement contains news, information and humour to help make life on the streets a wee bit safer and more tolerable. It’s well known amongst its target audience - London’s rough sleepers - but is virtually unheard of in more affluent circles. Editor Richard Burdett, whom we interviewed earlier this year, hopes to redress this with the new exhibition, which showcases the best cartoons from The Pavement’s two-year history.

Visitors can also see Eurobo££ocks - a look at Britain’s relationship with Europe over the past 50 years through the medium of the ‘toon.

The Cartoon Museum is at 35 Little Russell Street, and the exhibition runs until 23 December. Entrance £4, concessions £3.
