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.
