2D or not 2D?

A quick reminder that 2D, the Northern Ireland Comics Festival, returns from 4th – 6th June this year in Derry / Londonderry, featuring some of the most creative comic talent around.

The Festival will take place between The Verbal Arts Centre and Sandinos Bar and feature a diverse range of events, from educational workshops during the day on Thursday and Friday, to the always entertaining panel discussions in Sandinos, the best bar in town, on Friday and Saturday evenings. There will also be a closing party in Sandinos bar on Sat night to wrap proceedings up.

The event will also include Sketching, Signings, Dealers, an Exhibition and a whole lot more, and organiser David Campbell tells us the guest line-up will be announced soon and the event’s web site will be updated with all the details.

“We are working on content for the workshops and panels so if anyone has suggestions for something they would like featured please get in touch,” he says.
