To celebrate 75 years of the country's favourite comic, for the first time ever Beanotown was created on the Southbank. The home of Dennis the Menace and Gnasher, The Bash Street Kids, Minnie the Minx, Roger the Dodger, plus all the other comic strip superstars, it was a place where kids of all ages could enjoy laughs, jokes and childish pranks…yep, they did put black shoe polish around my camera viewfinder!
