Covid-19 is having a big impact on all our lives and we’d like to send all our friends, guests and comic lovers our very best wishes during this time.
We are still planning for a fantastic festival in October this year!
Over the weekend of 9 - 11 October we’ll be celebrating the amazing world of comic artists, creators and writers, as we bring the biggest names in comic art to Cumbria with over 70 special guests from across the world. We remain optimistic that the festival will go ahead but if we have to cancel, please rest assured full refunds will be given.
