Comica Festival At Central Saint Martins Is A Big Hit!

Posted: April 21, 2013

A great response from the public, creators and publishers alike to Comica Festival’s amazing new home in the Platform Theatre, Foyer, Studio Theatre and White Lab at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design near King’s Cross. The venue is so cool it’s not on Google Maps yet and it’s in a whole new London postcode, N1C. Here are a few photos from Comica’s friends. Do send or link us to your own and we’ll add some more here. And it all looks set for Comica to come back, even braver and bolder, this October. Details to follow!

Andy Poyiadgi emailed: “Just wanted to say a big thanks for a brilliant Comiket on Saturday, the venue went down really well and there seemed to be a great atmosphere all round. My table neighbours and I had a really successful day so looking forward to the next!”

And Andy Oliver over at Broken Frontier posted this great report from a punter’s perspective - many thanks, sirs!
