On a recent visit to London, I noticed that the ‘Fourth Plinth’ in Trafalgar Square was covered in a large installation of ice cream with a cherry on top.

What was the inspiration behind this, I wondered?

It was to promote an exhibition of ‘The Beano’ at Somerset House.

I paid a visit. It was very well curated, explaining the origins and history of the comic and its characters, and there were many ways that children (young and old ) could interact with the displays.

I enjoyed the visit!
