Take a rare opportunity to see Ham&High cartoonist Ken Pyne at work - as an exhibition celebrating 50 years of Private Eye comes to the Victoria & Albert Museum.

The cartoonist’s work has featured regularly in the satirical magazine since the mid 1970s and he is captured on film explaining the creative process, alongside clips of editor Ian Hislop.

“They say it’s an extension of childhood,” says Mr Pyne of his art. “It’s like being a footballer, but with lots of less money.”

The eight minute film is screened on a loop at the free exhibition, showing until January 8 next year.
