The Lakes International Comic Art Festival

This weekend in sunny Kendal is the annual Lakes International Comic Art Festival. This superb event is one of a kind in the UK with the festival taking over Kendal as a town rather than just one venue. You will find events in the Brewery Arts Centre, the Clock Tower and Shakespeare Centre.

It’s amazing how many big name comic creators will be there, and have been into our small town. This year is no exception with the full list of guests being found here. The full festival guide can be viewed here.

Clock Tower stalls

The event is ticketed for the talks, live drawings and other events however the Clock Tower is free to go in where you will find some amazing creators selling their wares as well as huge names of the comic world signing for everyone. You will also see art adorned around the town in shop windows which always looks amazing. Our very own Nicole has a display up this year too.

Of course there’s a reason other than supporting events in Kendal that I pop this up. Nikki, Mike and myself along with our logo creator Pete Taylor do the podcast for the event which we releases regularly. Have a gander if you enjoy comics. We have even had Wargamer based guests on including Games Workshop creator Ian Livingstone and novelist extraordinaire Dan Abnett.

If your free this coming weekend go and check it out, it’s great fun and worth supporting.
