Are you free this Sunday (24th July)? Enjoy comics, comedy, music and/or cake?
If the answer is yes, you should get yourself along to New Cross Turn Left - a wonderful new comics event organised by the equally wonderful Ellen Lindner, Julia Scheele, Nevs Coleman, and Howard Hardiman.
The venue is The Old Police Station - a lovely arts hub only a short walk from New Cross station (as the title of the event suggests, just turn left once you're outside). It is exactly what the name suggests - an old police station converted into studio space.
All sorts of events will be running on the day, including a comedy set from Nat Metcalfe - a regular of Josie Long's Lost Treasures Of The Black Heart night in Camden - plus workshops, exhibitions, and a communal table of comics and zines which will be on sale throughout the day. There will be food, drink and an after party - be sure to check out the website for more info.
Lots of great artists will be present and We Are Words + Pictures - on top of unveiling the fantastic Paper Science 5 - will have Michael Leader interviewing artists throughout the day in one of the abandoned police cells. I know right?! Should be a lot of fun.
I'll be there with Solipsistic Pop and some prints - come say hi and demand a sketch off me or something...
Here's Julia's lovely flyer for the event:
