One of the most famous comic book characters in history is celebrating his seventy-fifth birthday this year; Dennis the Menace is having a four month party down at the Southbank Centre, and he is inviting you to join in all the fun. All his friends will be there, including The Bash Street Kids, Minnie the Minx, Roger the Dodger, and of course, his loyal canine, Gnasher.

is a free event exploring the history of Beano comics. The Beano first appeared in 1938 and was published by D. C. Thomson & Co. The name came from a British colloquialism for 'party' or 'good time', which is certainly what you'll be having at the exhibit.

It will be a day to throw good manners out the window, get up to mischief, and become part of Dennis's gang: pull hair, let off stink bombs, fire missiles, and do some good old teacher-baiting.

If you run out of pranks, go to the Library and read some of your favourite annuals for inspiration. You'll also be able to use your imagination at the cafe, and come up with imaginative sandwich fillings, scoop up a bag of pick n' mix sweets, and dress up as a Beano characters at the photo booth.

Creative masterclasses will teach you how to draw, design your own comic books, and make a DJ radio show.
