Clare in the Community (The Guardian and Radio 4) original artwork, prints, 2019 calendars and greetings cards.

Clare Barker, AKA Clare In The Community.

Part saint, part siren, all social worker.

Compassion is in her heart, efficiency is in her training, tofu is in her sandwiches.

Clare In The Community has appeared in cartoon-strip form every week in The Guardian since 1996, and in 2004 she spawned a BBC Radio 4 sitcom starring Sally Phillips, which is currently on its twelfth series.

Hamlet, the out-of-work thespian pig is celebrating his 30th anniversary as star of The Stage magazine’s weekly strip cartoon. Examples of Hamlet’s yet to be recognized genius will be adorning the walls of New England House.

Clare and Hamlet are the brainchildren of Brighton-based award-winning cartoonist and writer, Harry Venning. Not only does Harry have a Sony Radio Comedy Award, but he has also won UK Cartoon Art Trust’s Strip Cartoonist Of The Year (he’s not saying which year).

Here is a chance to purchase a range of Clare In The Community gifts for the leftie in your life and Hamlet cartoons….to lift your spirits and bring some laughter into these dark days…

We have original artwork, we have calendars, we have cards, we have postcards.

Clare would be appalled.

Hamlet would be delighted at the attention.

Location: Level 3  (South)
