Battle of the Toons - The Lakes International Comic Art Festival Opening Gala Event.

About this event

Battle of the Toons

Eight comic book characters are floating high over the Lake District in a hot air balloon. All is tranquil until… LICAF, we have a problem. The balloon is sinking. Excess weight! Someone’s been bingeing on the Hob Nobs during lockdown. We need to jettison some of the passengers in order to stay aloft. Who stays? Who goes? You decide. Our opening gala event is a classic balloon debate featuring eight guests, each taking on the role of their own chosen comic character.

In an intercontinental twist, some of our contestants will be joining us live from NCSFest (the National Cartoonists’ Society Festival) in America. And the whole thing will be lampooned live by our master guest cartoonists Steve McGarry, Luke McGarry and friends. As if that weren’t enough, the opening night will also feature the awarding of this year’s Sergio Award for Excellence in Comic Art and some other exciting announcements.
