“I think it’s very essential that artists meet other artists… and we can have a good moan together.”
– Bob Godfrey, 2006
London Animation Club is a monthly soiree for animators and people interested in animation in the capital, with regular guests presenting their work in informal surroundings.
Since Covid, the club has moved to an online event, but this broadened its range and led to some exciting intercontinental link-ups. To keep the social side also going, we also introduced regular Zoom parties. In October 2021, we did our first face-to-face event since March 2020 and hope to continue our live presence in 2022.
London Animation Club was founded and is curated by London-based animator Martin Pickles. The “live” events generally take place at the Green Man, Riding House Street, Fitzrovia.
