Event professionals are being given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rub noses with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang, when a ground-breaking exhibition comes to Somerset House this autumn.

Good Grief, Charlie Brown! Celebrating Snoopy and the Enduring Power of Peanuts, comes to Somerset House’s Embankment Galleries between 25th October 2018 and 3rdMarch 2019. The landmark exhibition showcases the original drawings of the cartoon’s creator Charles M. Schulz, rarely seen before in Europe, alongside works inspired by Snoopy, Charlie Brown and all the best-loved Peanuts characters, from some of today’s most exciting artists and designers including Fiona Banner, Ryan Gander, KAWS, Ken Kagami and Mira Calix. It explores the impact of the most successful comic strip of all time on the contemporary cultural landscape, uncovering the social, political and philosophical complexities told through the four-panel comic strip that have spoken to scores of artists and designers in their own work.
