Creators of a massive piece of public art are coming to Suffolk to discuss their testimonial treatise on great British comedy phrases.
The Comedy Carpet was laid at the foot Blackpool Tower earlier this year.
On Wednesday, November 8, its creators will be in conversation at the Lettering Arts Centre, home of the Lettering Arts Trust, at Snape Maltings.
The talk, entitled ‘Titter Ye Not’, after the famous words uttered by Frankie Howerd, begins at 6pm, when graphic designer Andy Altmann, from design group Why Not Associates, and artist Gordon Young, will share stories from the making of 180,000 granite letters, which spell out jokes, songs and catchphrases of more than 1,000 comedians and comedy writers from the early days of variety to the present.
Tickets are £10, or free to members of our the trust’s friends scheme.
