Time for a comics community shout-out on behalf of our pals at London’s Cartoon Museum where Broken Frontier has appeared at multiple events over the last decade-plus, at both its locations. Since 2022 the museum’s accessibility has been hampered by a malfunctioning lift (or elevator for our US readers). Below are details about the crowdfunder to help the museum in its final stage of getting that vital method of access back up and working again.
Give The Cartoon Museum A Lift!
Crowdfunder Currently Open and Running Until 12 March 2024
At The Cartoon Museum, we’re passionate about cartoons, comics AND accessibility!
Our museum’s mission is to connect everyone who comes through our doors to cartoons and comics – but can everyone actually get to see them? Currently no, due to a set of stairs and a malfunctioning lift. But you can change all that!
Our lift has been out of order since 2022. This means that people with mobility issues or buggies have had problems getting in without calling for assistance, including the many neurodiverse young people that visit with their families as part of our award-winning autism programming.
With the support of some wonderful partners we have so far raised £45,000 and need your help pushing us over the line. In return we have partnered up with legendary cartoonist Ralph Steadman to offer some incredible, one-off, limited edition prints. We have also done a reprint run on some incredibly rare Cartoon Museum merchandise featuring little-seen works by Ralph from our collection.
If you would like to net yourself some awesome Ralph Rewards while helping all our visitors access the world of cartoons and comics without worrying about their mobility, please do your bit and donate to our crowdfunder today which you’ll find at https://www.crowdfunder.co.

Every little helps us get there and if you want to support the museum but can only afford the amount of money you might spend on a beer, coffee, or lose in the sofa then we would love you to donate it in return for our everlasting thanks!
