8.00-9.15 IF… Bursts Out: An Evening with Steve Bell
In election year, and with satire high on the agenda, who better to open our festival than multi-award-winning political cartoonist for The Guardian, Steve Bell?
For a third of a century Steve’s IF strip has been redefining the boundaries of political satire. In his cartoons our leaders have become grotesque monsters, and one Tory MP even wrote to The Guardian complaining that ‘to be forced to participate in Steve Bell's perversions is degrading’. Now you can join Steve on a roller-coaster ride through the last five years of coalition government and bang up to date. Savage, funny, rude, transgressing all the rules of good taste and beautifully drawn, don’t make this evening IF but when.
“Outrageous, anarchic, brilliant” – John Pilger.
