The station graces the front of this year’s The Beano 2015 Annual and to celebrate it is playing host to an exciting thirteen week party with Dennis the Menace and The Bash Street Kids.
The party starts on Monday 20th October and runs through to Monday 5th January 2015. Various activities taking place include:
- A specially curated exhibition chronicling past annual covers from as far back as 1939
- Interactive photo boards that give you the chance to feel as though you are taking a starring role in the comic
- A one of a kind Dennis the Menace inspired black and red table tennis table, Table Dennis, so you can test your table tennis metal against friends and family
- Hang out with the cool crowd by meeting the comic’s most famous resident – Dennis the Menace – face to face as they wander the station causing chaos
October half term holidays also signals the chance to meet one of The Beano’s illustrators through a series of master classes.
Tim Collins, Head of Brands, DC Thomson, says:
“The launch of The Beano Annual is always an event and each year we create new content and have more pages than many others in the market. There is a huge affection for this much-loved brand in the UK and after more than a year in the making, we’re really excited to be able to finally unveil this exclusive partnership with St Pancras International to support the nation’s favourite annual.”
Wendy Spinks, commercial director of HS1 Ltd (owners of St Pancras International) says:
“As the nights draw in and the weather starts to get colder, we wanted to inject a bit of fun and frivolity into the daily commute. Dennis the Menace and the gang are known for creating mayhem and mischief so who better to put a smile on people’s faces.”
