The boarded-up windows of the former Exchange Building on Broad Street have been brightened up with some cartoons, including one of BBC Radio Nottingham's Karl Cooper.

The caricatures form part of the preparation for the second Big Grin Cartoon festival on 12th and 13th July.

The larger than life cartoons are based on the themes of the festival, ranging from religion and war to film and Viz cartoons.
