New sources of funding and graduates from innovative animation courses put the British animation industry on top of the world. This selection of some of the key highlights packs a sizable punch. It takes the audience out for a night on the tiles, on a journey into the soul, and a visit to the funfair. It features animated battles big and small, military experiments, Billy Bunter, and the domestication of a sizeable British bulldog. And if that seems a lot to deal with, don’t worry there are a couple of lively dance breaks along the way.
