Pick a nose for Comic Relief

The Art Department would like to share a playful activity that we are running for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day, taking place on Friday 15 March 2024.

We are inviting students, staff – you! (If you wish) – to join in and celebrate doodling.

The activity is very simple: Doodle a face (of your own choice and imagining) with a red nose - inspired by some rather delightful research into children’s drawings of noses, developed in 1932. You can read more about this here and, well, pick a nose to begin!

If you’d like to contribute a doodle to our pop-up exhibition – even better. Please complete this on A4 paper (portrait format) and remember to keep your nose red!

If your doodle is with us by Friday morning, 15 March 2024 (and you’ve played along appropriately!) we’ll find a place for it on our pop-up display.

A link for donations is available here

All donations go directly to Comic Relief in support of a range of important charity organisations in both the UK and abroad.

If you’ve got any questions, please email

THANK YOU for any donation you are able to make.

Happy Doodling!
