Head to Cumbria for the Comic Art Festival

Kendal, Cumbria

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival will put a spotlight for one fantastic weekend on the brilliance, diversity and quirkiness of comic art.

The festival has lots of events and activities to enjoy. The Comics Clocktower will open all day on Saturday and Sunday, and will be full of independent creators, publishers and retailers representing a wide range of comics from around the world.

The ticketed events programme is bursting with opportunities to get up close and personal with some of the leading comic artists and writers. See them draw, talk about their work, and bring comics to life in front of your eyes.

2016 guests include Joe Kelly, Bryan Lee O'Malley, Mick McMahon, Ken Niimura and Benoit Peeters. There will also be a free family zone with lots of drop-in activity for all ages and a series of fantastic workshops for kids and teenagers, as well as pop-up comic art venues including a special bar with a twist.
