Postgate & Firmin exhibition

Went to Canterbury this morning to take our youngest to the Rupert Bear Musuem. That's lovely as it is, having the chance to study the beautiful original painting up close.
But, main draw is the permanent exhibit of the genius of Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin. Original Noggin The Nog animation characters (made of card, but you can't tell), original Clangers, the whole Bagpuss shopfront and, oddly as Noggin was a true 2D animation, a lovely model of Noggin's Flying Ship.
Well worth a visit if you're down that way, and only a couple of quid to see.
