Southampton is welcoming their first ever zine fest, in the shape of the Southampton Craft and Zine Fair, taking place over the weekend of the 21st & 22nd November at The Arthouse Gallery Cafe (178 Above Bar Street, SO14 7DW).
We really wanted to make it but have to be in Brighton for the next Eagle Legs clubnight (on the Saturday night), but would urge anyone living in or near Southampton to go along and join in the fun! Being a Salisbury girl I know it's rare to have these kinds of events around the mid South, so this is one not to miss.
Here's what they say about the event:
"Hip crafts meets subversive (and not so subversive) literature at Southampton's first (feel free to correct me on this one) zine and craft fair. 12-5pm both Saturday and Sunday. Stalls and workshops will be upstairs to browse and shop, whether for you or for Christmas presents for your nearest and dearest. Plus, as always, the Art House will be serving their super scrumptious cakes and lunch."
The organisers still have stalls available to any zinesters wanting to take part, so drop them a line at firstname.lastname@example.org for forms etc. And help to spread the word! Facebook event is HERE
