Captain Pugwash @ The Word

Isabel Ryan, daughter of John Ryan, the man who created Captain Pugwash, kindly loaned original Captain Pugwash pieces including the first Captain Pugwash dummy, some of the original handmade animations and more to our Shiver Me Timbers: Pirates on Page, Stage and Screen exhibition (25 May 2017 – 18 February 2018).

Isabel visited The Word on Saturday 10th February 2018 to give a talk and demonstration of Captain Pugwash.

While she was here, we interviewed Isabel to find out her thoughts on her father’s legacy and being able to share it with visitors to The Word.

We would like to thank Isabel for the loans and supporting The Word.
