The Drawing Room, The Beaney

Peter Firmin & Oliver Postgate created children’s programmes such as Bagpuss & The Clangers near Canterbury, in outbuildings including a converted pig sty and a barn. This celebration of the huge output of Smallfilms from rural roots gives fascinating insights into early, pre-CGI animation, and also showcases Firmin’s output as a printmaker, with opportunities to buy his work.
