Thought Bubble Festival
The Thought Bubble Festival is the UK’s largest event of its kind – an annual celebration of sequential art in all its forms, including everything from superhero comics to independent and small-press artists and writers.
2016’s festival programme will run from 1st – 6th November (with selected satellite and fringe events before and after these dates), and will include free art and writing based workshops for young people and adults, a two day academic conference, talks and masterclasses led by industry professionals, and a programme of sequential art related film screenings.
Our special two day convention, taking place on Leeds Dock 5th and 6th November, includes an incredible line-up of leading artists and writers, and over 300 tables showcasing the best sequential art has to offer, with creator appearances, publisher presence, and retailers. The weekend will also feature portfolio viewings and competitions, as well as a huge cosplay parade. This promises to be one of the best events of its kind in the UK, as we’re celebrating comics in style!
Thought Bubble formed in 2007 as a non-profit-making organisation dedicated to promoting comics, graphic novels, and animation as an important national and international cultural art-form. Now in its 10th year, the festival has been extended over a full week with a jam-packed programme of events at a variety of venues across the city. Our aim is to cater to both long-time comic book fans and those who have never picked up a graphic novel before!
