If you are likely to be anywhere near Manchester between June 22 Jun 2013 and 3 Nov 2013, then the Museum of Science and Industry's Creating the Illusion: Animation in the North West looks well worth popping into, and it's free!
Described as a small exhibition, it will delve the depths of the surprisingly eclectic MOSI archives (full sized statue of Count Duckula’s butler Igor) and private collections to look at Cosgrove Hall Films - those wonderful folks responsible for many memorable shows from Danger Mouse to The BFG, and Wyrd Sisters and Soul Music through to my own fondly remembered Cockleshell Bay.
With rather old school but awesome magic lantern, through to making your own moving images, it should be a good one for the nostalgic adults and hands on kids.
Webcomic and occasional blog about the heritage sector.
