downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hi-Ex Gets Funding Boost

Fab Scottish comics convention Hi-Ex has just secured local council funding for its next gathering in 2010.

BBC News reports the Highland Council has offered funding for the outreach programme which would see artists and writers hold workshops in schools - the first time the event has secured funding from Highland Council and a great boost for all the hard work organisers Vicky Stonebridge and Richmond Clements have been putting into the convention and their work promoting comics.

Guests at next year's event at Eden Court in Inverness from 27-28 March include Al Ewing, Alan Grant, Ferg Handley, John higgins and many others. More info: www.hi-ex.co.uk
