Lakes International Comic Art Festival.

You may well find yourself heading to the Lakes this autumn if you’re a comic book fan. With live drawing events, interviews and panel discussions, book launches, international exhibitors, and a chance to meet comic book legends from all over the world, you’ll kick yourself if you miss this annual extravaganza of all things comic art and creativity in beautiful Bowness-on-Windermere.

Every kind of superhero, and heroine. World-threatening evil villains. Dystopian worlds and fantastical creatures. Politics, satire, comedy, drama, science fiction, social commentary, documentary – the annual Lakes International Comic Arts Festival has it all, and so much more besides – and all in the stunning surroundings of Bowness-on-Windermere. 

Beginning in Kendal in 2013, the festival moved to Bowness-on-Windermere in 2022, and past events have included writers and artists involved in The Simpsons, The Walking Dead, The Sandman, and the Minions movie, so it’s a must-visit for any comic art fan. And with a huge range of exhibitors in the Comic Marketplace – spanning every genre of comic and graphic novel, this celebration of comic art has something for everyone.
