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?

Mezolith writer Ben Hegarty visits Lancaster

Internationally renowned storyteller Ben Haggarty, writer of The DFC's Mezolith strip, returns to Lancaster on Thursday 10th May with the epic tale of Gilgamesh.

Possibly the oldest story in the world, this ancient masterpiece will be presented by Ben in a powerful performance at the Litfest Auditorium in The Storey.

The ultimate quest story, Gilgamesh tells of a bored tyrant ruling a city so beautiful that even the Gods choose to make it their home and explores mankind's eternal struggle with the fear of death.

Comic creator Ben Haggarty is a central figure in contemporary UK storytelling and has been featured on numerous radio programmes including BBC Radio 4’s Midweek, A Good Read, and The Today Programme. He is internationally respected for his passionate and lively performances.

- Ben Haggarty presents Gilgamesh: Litfest Auditorium, The Storey, Meeting House Lane. Not suitable for under 12's. Tickets cost £7.50 (£6 concessions) and can be booked through www.litfest.org or by calling 01524 62166.
