The Lakes International Comic Art Festival‘s Windows on Comic Art Trail has just launched in Kendal in the run up to the weekend-long comics event.
It’s a unique art trail, displayed in business windows across the town, and provides a fabulous opportunity for the town to get behind the festival and for a wide range of artists to get involved. It also provides visitors with a brilliant way to explore the town.
“Thousands see the Windows Trail each year and hundreds vote in the Peoples Vote for the Favourite Window,” enthuses organiser Sandra Wood.
If you would like to cast a vote, please download and print out your Windows Trail Vote Slip (PDF link).
The boxed to post them in can be found at the Brewery Arts Centre Box Office and at the Comics Clock Tower over the weekend of the festival. Make sure your vote goes in the box by Monday 17th October when voting closes!
