The Lakes International Comic Art Festival 2020


We are planning for a fantastic online festival from October 9 – 11. We’ll be celebrating the amazing world of comic artists, creators and writers.

LICAF LIVE is a free virtual festival bursting with awesome comic art from around the world!


Comics, Clouds and Kendal Mint Cake

Why is the Lake District such a great place to inspire artists, and to read comics?

In this strand, travel with one of our top guests to a specific spot in the Lakes, and watch them read or discuss a comic there, showing us why they like the place and how the comic relates to it.



LICAF Live is very excited to present our Virtual Comics Clocktower for 2020!

Created by the formidable force that is Joe and Luke McGarry… we invite you to meet creators, sample their work and then, if you like it, buy some comics, prints and other merchandise.

Check out the exciting range of independent comic artists in our amazing new Comics Clocktower.
