Safari Festival is a celebration of the new wave of alternative and art comics from the UK and beyond. Taking place on Saturday, 12th August, the festival is an opportunity for a curated group of cartoonists and publishers to exhibit and sell their artwork, prints and, primarily, comics, and for attendees to experience the best of UK comics’ avant-garde. The artists exhibiting have been selected for their innovative, fearless, diverse approaches to making comics; approaches to cartooning that Safari exists to champion.
