Join us for a thrilling journey into the world of comics
race through the snows of the frozen north, stop off in Japan for a manga makeover, then jump aboard the hyperspace railway! Along the way you can meet and work with professional comic creators, develop art and story telling skills, discover new artists and comics and have loads of fun! Part of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, the Family Zone is for kids and their parents. Our aim is to encourage kids to engage with comics as readers and creators, introducing them to the incredible range of comics that are out there while helping them develop their own creative talents. This is an incredible opportunity for kids to meet and work a wide range of award-winning and supremely talented professional artists and writers. Taking place across three venues in Kendal (Westmorland Shopping Centre, Kendal Library and the Brewery Arts Centre) we'll have workshops, presentations, comic jams, storytelling, comic-making, crafting, games, a special trail and much more… For full Festival details visit the website: <a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href=""></a> Main Funder: Arts Council England Main Sponsor: Westmorland Shopping Centre
