This year we have extended the trail by creating exhibitions in two businesses in the town centre: Brew Brothers will have an exhibition by Andy Poyiadgi whose comic Teapot Theory was shortlisted for the Observer/Jonathan Cape/Comica Graphic Short Story Prize and was coloured with genuine English Breakfast tea. White Stuff will have an exhibition by Mike Medaglia, a comic artist, illustrator and Zen Buddhist whose book One Year Wiser will be featured at the festival by SelfMadeHero. All the artwork in this exhibition will be for sale and the proceeds go to the charity that White Stuff regularly supports, the Bendrigg Trust.

Walking for Health. Make sure that you walk the whole trail. It starts at Kendal Leisure Centre, where you can park, leave the car and walk in to town. The trail is 3.2km long… which is 2 miles long… which is 4000 steps and you could burn up to 500 calories making your way around the trail... so comic art is very good for your health! Prizes will be awarded for the Best Artist Window, Best School or Group Window and The People’s Vote. Make sure you cast a vote in The People’s Vote. Slips are available in the Windows Trail businesses and you can post your voting slip in the Brewery, Clocktower or leave it with the host business.
