Free ‘Arts Centre ComicCon’ in Scotland – March 11th, 10am to 5pm, Official programme

The Arts Centre Comic Con will run on Saturday 11th March from 10am to 5pm. The Comic Con will feature contributors to the Kirknewton Story and several other comic creators selling their comics, doing sketches and signing their books. You can also visit the Comic Art Exhibition featuring 2000AD, Beano, DC and Marvel artists and our display of over 70 modern comics. This event is supported by the Heritage Lottery and is free entry.

The Howden Park Centre is based in Livingston and is less than an hour from Edinburgh, Fife, Glasgow, Falkirk and Stirling. There is ample parking at the Howden Park Centre or at the Designer Outlet, which is ten minutes walk away (worth a visit in itself – includes a Waterstones, WHSmith, HMV and Manga store).
