The glorious world of Pick Me Up returns to Somerset House this spring and is a must-see for designers, illustrators and creatives alike.

Now in its fourth year of taking over the Embankment Galleries, Pick Me Up features a diverse range of graphic artists and illustrators and includes affordable prints (starting at £10), creative workshops, late-night art events and family fun.

Highlights this year include Shaun the Sheep workshops with Aardman (!), comedy cartoonists Modern Toss and a pop-up nail art bar. Featured artists as part of Pick Me Up Selects include Anna Lomax, Stuart Patience, Hattie Stewart and Jean Jullien.

Print Club London's Open Studio will also return; Nelly Duff will bring famous flower market Columbia Road to the galleries and Hero of Switzerland are building a Pick Me Up boozer where you can design your own beer labels while having a chat with the creative landlords.
