JOIN THE PARTY!!!

As a visitor to the Comics Festival you will have full access to additional attractions supplied by our parent event Shrewsbury Fields Forever which is happening on 16th to 18th September.

This is Shropshire's favourite music festival and includes bands in their line up such as the legendary Happy Mondays, Sunshine Underground and the Mystery Jets.

 

These attractions include a spectacular fun fair for all the family, food and drink for sale and a host of costumed characters such as the excellent K9 Division of Judge Dredd characters pictured right.

 

In the evenings you can also enjoy a full roster of cutting edge comedians as the comic festival becomes a comedy festival.

You get three top stand up comedians Saturday and Sunday evenings including Adam Rowe, Rich Wilson, Carl Donnelly and Alun Cochrane compared by the brilliant Danny McLoughlin for just £5 entry from 5.30pm until 9.00pm.

The comedy festival is free entry for Shrewsbury Fields Ticket Holders.

 

There really is something for everyone.

Hello and welcome to the official Shrewsbury International Comic Art Festival Website.

We have joined forces with Shropshire's biggest and most popular Music, Art and Comedy Festival - Shrewsbury Fields Forever - to bring you the UK's most exciting and original FREE festival experience of 2016.

We celebrate comics and graphic novels in all of their forms, whether that be superheroes, manga or digital comics.

We welcome every single type of fan including the collectors, the curious movie goers and the colourful cosplayers.

You can also have a go at learning how to make your own comics in our series of inspiring workshops and master classes hosted by some of the biggest names in the business.

Thanks to the organisers of the annual Shrewsbury Fields Forever Music, Arts and Comedy Festival  and to Shrewsbury Town Council we expect crowds of up to 5000 people per day to be pouring through the gates at Britain's first truly FREE open air comics festival.

 

For the first ever time at a major cultural event comics are taking centre stage and being thrust into the mainstream where they belong and we would like to invite you and all your friends and family to join in the fun absolutely FREE OF CHARGE!

 

As well as all of the top guests, events and comedy acts we'll have a large exhibition space for over 50 exhibitors under our giant constructed exhibition area where you can discover something new from a selection of the UK's most innovative small publishers or finally get your hands on that hard to find collectable you've been after in the dealers area.

 

The Comic art festival opens for free to the public from 12noon until 6pm Friday to Sunday. Shrewsbury Fields ticket holders have early bird entry from 11am and free entry to the evening stand up comedy festival from 7.30 pm. Just show a print out of your eticket from Skiddle.
