Whether you love all things animation, work in animation, once saw an animation or just know that Popeye was a sailor, join us for an evening of animated things & drinks!

Steve Smith from Beakus will be giving us an introduction to the creative, inventive, and at times quite surreal world of Olobob Top.Created by picture-book author-illustrator Leigh Hodgkinson and her husband and animation director-producer Steve Smith of Beakus, Olobob Top is a 52-episode children’s animation for CBeebies – and is about to have a second series.Its unique take on creative play, through the building of new characters and outlandish scenarios, almost won Beakus a Kidscreen Award last year… almost…!

From conception to transmission it’s been an up-and-down kind of journey, as all good journeys are, and Steve will be sharing some of that with you.

Admission age 16+ only

Tickets from Eventbrite.

We’re also running an animation challenge “Micromorsels”.
