Tickets for this year’s East London Comics and Arts Festival have just gone on sale. I know, right. *runs away to buy tickets*
So anyway, for a mere £3, you’ll be kept busy on June 14th by an exciting programme filled with workshops and talks - and that’s apart from all the tables (including ours, hint hint) where you’ll be able to browse, chat, and spend your coins.
Oh, and did we mention that Chris Ware will be there? Yes.
Yet another cracking event for you this weekend. If you’re in London on Saturday, make sure you head over to Gosh! Comics between 2 - 3pm. Mary Talbot and Kate Charlesworth will be signing copies of their latest book, Sally Heathcote, Suffragette. They’ll also be joined by Bryan Talbot, who’s done the layout for this book.
Here’s the blurb, in case this isn’t already on your radar:
Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is a gripping inside story of the campaign for the vote. A tale of loyalty, love and courage, set against a vividly realized backdrop of Edwardian Britain, it follows the fortunes of a maid-of-all-work swept up in the feminist militancy of the era.
Another stunning collaboration from Costa-award winners, Mary and Bryan Talbot, teamed up with acclaimed illustrator, Kate Charlesworth, Sally Heathcote’s lavish pages bring history to life.
Sums it all up really. I mean, at the moment it’s just leaden skies in London. Someone send the sun over, I thought it was meant to be spring!
Tickets for the Lakes International Comic Arts Festival are now on sale. Just head over to the website for more information on how to obtain some.
