Get set for a celebration of comic art from across the world!

The weekend festival takes over the scenic town of Kendal, on the edge of the Lake District.

From 13 – 15 October 2017 the Lakes International Comic Art Festival will be celebrating the amazing world of comic artists, creators and writers.

Featuring live comic drawing, films, exhibitions, comic trails, workshops, performance, masterclasses, a free family zone and independent publishers – the events programme is bursting with opportunities to get up close and personal with some of the leading comic artists and writers from across the world.

We bring the biggest names in comic art to Cumbria with over 70 special guests from across the comic world. There really is something for everyone, whether you’re a comic veteran, new to comics or just love seeing amazing artists at work.
