1. True Believers Comic Festival

<!--[if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE <![endif]-->Guest Appearance at Inaugural Event

 Hi Folks,

Well, I thought I would start off 2015 by announcing I am one of the guests at the first Comic Festival of the year for me, which is at the True Believers Comic Festival. This is the first time this event has been held.

The event takes place on Saturday February 7th 2015.

It is being held between 10am and 6:30pm.

The Venue is in the magnificent setting of Cheltenham Racecourse – Cheltenham – Gloucestershire – UK – GL50 4SH.




The convention is solely concerned with Comics themselves unlike most other events, which concentrate on Film, TV, Toys, and Cosplay with comics finding themselves marginalised in a ghetto somewhere within the venues.

From all accounts this one follows on from European festivals, like the one I attend each year in Malta, and others in the UK such as Thought Bubble and The Lakes International Comic Art Festival events, so as you can imagine, I am excited to have been asked to take part.

In their words; “The True Believers Comic Festival is a new UK based event that celebrates comics, their creators and the fans who love them.”

Check out the links below to their website and its many different pages of fun-filled activities that they have lined up for everyone visiting.

I cannot wait to go along and meet everyone.

I’ll be situated at TABLE # F1 – Check out the Map below for more details.


 

I’m lined up to Join Emma Vieceli, Kate Brown and Dylan Teague on one of the event Panels, DRAWING COMICS, which is taking place at 16:15pm and, which is due to last approximately 30 minutes.

Of course I will also have all the usual products on sale and hope to have some BRAND NEW finished colour work on display from Worlds End – Volume 2 – A Hard reign’s Gonna Fall.

So please feel free to pop by my table and say hi and don’t forget to pick up the books and stuff and check them all out!!! So many folks seem frightened to touch the books until prompted, so please feel yourselves invited to take a look at them all.

Now, I’ll end with some exciting news regarding our latest Worlds End COMPETITION, which will give one lucky family a chance to WIN two adult and two children’s tickets to this wonderful Comic Festival and a Signed Sketch from my good self as the Prizes!!!

Check out this Blog and the News Pages on the Wizards Keep and Worlds End Websites on, Monday 19th January at around 12:00pm for all the details and to enter.

GOOD LUCK!!!

Now let the Magik begin...

 

See you all down there soon.

Until next time, have fun!

Tim Perkins…
