THE BIRMINGHAM COMICS Festival is proud to announce it will be celebrating its third consecutive year of activity across the second city this June.

A city-wide series of comics-related events, large and small, will again take place from fun days out for kids to academic lectures, exhibitions and film shows alongside its popular convention that is moving to a new city-centre based state-of-the-art venue.

Throughout June those in the city can look forward to events taking place at popular local venues and tourist spots including the MAC Birmingham, The Mockingbird Cinema & Kitchen, The Victoria Theatre Pub, Nostalgia & Comics, Waterstones Bookshop, the Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park and the aforementioned Birmingham City University where its convention will take place this year.
