Partners & Sponsors

A festival of this magnitude can only be made possible when the whole community gets involved. We are committed to engaging with people of all ages and backgrounds throughout the period of planning and delivery of our festival.

With this in mind our directors have reached out to a range of partners to help us make this amazing event a reality.

We are working closely with Shropshire Council, Shrewsbury Town Council, Shrewsbury University Centre and many other organisations, businesses and educational establishments to ensure that Comics Salopia delivers an amazing festival which benefits the whole community.

Here are some of our most prominent partners and sponsors so you can find out more about them and how they are contributing to the festival.
