Bradford Zine Fayre - 21st June


Another Zine Fayre! And this time it's in Bradford, on Sunday June 21st at the Treehouse Cafe, which is opposite the uni on the left as you wander up Great Horton Road (hopefully this will make sense to people familiar with the geography of Bradford). The day promises to be a "celebration of all things DIY and papery", which we like the sound of very much. Unfortuntely we're not able to make it us Brighton Shebangers are moving house, so it's up to you to go on our behalf and give all the details! And speaking of details, here is what we have learnt about the event so far...

"The Bradford Centre for Non-Violence / Treehouse Cafe will be transformed into a den of DIY.

Three rooms will be full to the brim with lots of incredible zines from all over the UK. Feminism, queer issues, anarchism, music, personal experiences, crafts, art, photography, history, comics, illustration… zines can and do cover everything; you’ll have a chance to peruse through these lovely self-published tomes of joy and meet the creators too! Manifesta, Lola and the Cartwheels, BD7 Punx, Branches Distro, Subtext, Mobile Menstrual Zine Library, Claptrap, Beep! and ZNA Distro will all be there for your enjoyment, plus a load more.

Then there are the special workshops! For full listings, click here.

So please do get in touch if you want to exhibit anything. There will be tables for people to put individual zines on, but we want this to be collectively shaped and sculpted- so if you draw, write, paint, type, photograph, glue or sew then please get in touch!"
