2D - Northern Ireland Comics Festival

Fri, 30/05/2014 (All day)
Location: 
Verbal Art's Centre

http://theverbal.co/events/2d-northern-ireland-comics-festival

Since 2007 the majority of the festival has been hosted at the Verbal Arts Centre, in a fantastic location on the beautiful and historic city walls. Derry/Londonderry is the only remaining completely walled city in Ireland and one of the finest examples of Walled Cities in Europe. This year much of the educational and industry programming will again be hosted at the Verbal Arts Centre, but the popular 2D Comics Fair has now moved to a new home at the Millennium Forum, a fantastic venue also on the city’s walls.
