Comics @ Edinburgh International Science Festival

Edinburgh’s many festivals often offer comics events but they do tend to happen during the Book Festival or the Film Festival so it is unusual to see something turn up at the Science Festival.

This year Paul Collicutt, author and artist of the children’s graphic novel series Robot City Adventures, will be giving a talk and art workshop about his robots. The 1 hour event is suitable for ages 7 and above and will take place at 2pm on Tuesday 12 April 2011 at the Scottish Storytelling Centre on the city’s Royal Mile. The cost of the event is a very reasonable £4.

There are more details of the event and how to purchase tickets on the Edinburgh International Science Festival website.
