Applications Open for Comics Clock Tower 2021!

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is delighted to invite exhibitors to the ninth Festival in Kendal, which will run from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th October 2021, with the Comics Clock Tower open as usual on the Saturday and Sunday.

Full details on how to apply, including terms and conditions information, can be found here.

This year, the Festival is offering full tables at £100 and half tables at £50 – we cannot offer shared tables this year. And rest assured that in the event we do go ahead, we will take every measure to ensure our staff, volunteers, exhibitors and the public are safe.

"We are very excited about the prospect of a live Festival, and we’re currently very optimistic about the option of running an actual Comics Clock Tower on the Saturday and Sunday," says team member and Clock Tower co-ordinator Carole Tait.

"We will be announcing our decision to go live, or virtual in May 2021, and no payment will be requested before this decision has been taken."

Obviously, should the coronavirus situation cause us to have to change the Festival's plans for October, we have a fantastic Virtual Comics Clock Tower where our exhibitors will be able to feature free of charge.

We're really looking forward to seeing everyone back at a physical Lakes International Comic Art Festival. Let's do all we can to make that happen!

• All applications must be received by email to the address on site before no later than 5.00pm UK time on Friday 26th March 2021.
