So after months of planning CECAF15 has been and gone. I feel it was a success, there are loads that I would have liked to have done better. But it held itself together and I believe CECAF continued in it’s aim as an event, bringing comics to a new audience/ giving creators a new audience.
I failed to take any photos, but thankfully other people did.
So here are reviews and pics as they appear.
CECAF (Crouch End Comic Arts Festival) had it’s second outing this Saturday just gone, finely crafted from the hands of Sean Azzopardi and held in Earl Haig Hall, Crouch End. The festival coincided nicely with the Crouch End Festival and a lovely sunny day to lure in the masses, and although it was a bit quiet at times it was a great day!
The second year of the Crouch End Comic Arts Festival took place on a sunny day in this trendy area of North London, one of a number of UK comics events taking place over the past few weeks – and the upcoming month is going to be just as busy. Because of this, each event has to make its own mark, have its own style and audience. CECAF certainly has a small press indie feel, based in a fairy light illuminated town hall. There was also drinking.
And I’d like to thank Sean Azzopardi for another cracking CECAF on the Saturday just passed. I had a wonderful time and it was great to meet so many lovely people – some long-time comic fans, some locals who’d never even read a comic, and KIDS KIDS KIDS.
Andrew Watton-Davies recorded a number podcast interviews on the day.
