Crouch End Cartoon Arts Festival 2018 Poster SNIP

Crouch End set to go comic crazy as CECAF returns in June

Crouch End Cartoon Arts Festival 2018 Poster9th June 2018 sees the return of CECAF (Crouch End Cartoon Arts Festival), once again taking place at the Earl Haig Hall, London.

CECAF will host the best and brightest cartoonists and independent publishers from the UK comics scene, including Karrie Fransman, Roger Langridge, Gareth Brooks and Francesca Cassavetti, Sally-Anne Hickman, Paul Rainey, Zoom Rockman, Rob Wells, Space Babe 113, Avery Publishing, Claude T. C, Backward Burds, David Baillie, Dan Lester, Sarah Gordon, Cliodhna Lyons, Oliver Lamden, Douglas Noble, Andy Williams, Danny Noble, Wallis Eates, Rachael Ball, Karen Rubins, Centrala, Breakdown Press Lando, Paul Shinn, Soaring Penguin and Kugali Media.

“The past 10 years have seen an exciting boom in the independent comics scene and a huge increase in the number of creators, publishers and consumers interesting in comics,” says artist Sean Azzopardi, one of the main team behind the event. “Which is important, as the Mainstream commercial events are having to raise prices and fit more exhibitors in to cover costs.

“Smaller local events are really important, offering an affordable and accessible option for exhibitors and audience.

“Crouch End is home to many of these cartoonists,” he continues, “so it’s only fitting this event take place in the epicentre of the red hot creative hub that is London N8. It is free to enter, bring as many friends and family as you like. We welcome everyone.

“Why not come along and see what we’re up to. We promise you won’t regret it!”
