In 2016 an idea born on twitter led to a series of nationwide events in a matter of weeks. The inaugural Small Press Day – a celebratory event designed to spotlight the possibilities of small press publishing and to introduce its practitioners to the far wider audience they deserve – proved to be a phenomenal success. No less than 25 events championing the small press were held across the UK and Ireland on the same day in July – including shop signings, fairs, panels and workshops – resulting in #SmallPressDay to trend throughout.

Last year SPD was back looking to build on that accomplishment. Hundreds joined us at one of the stores/venues listed on the map below for Small Press Day 2017 and to meet with the next generation of superstar comic creators, zine makers, and DIY micro publishers. Full listings of all last year’s excellent events can be found here

This year, we look to make Small Press day 2018 bigger, better, and bolder – join us on Saturday 7th July to celebrate all things small press and to make that happen.

The below listing of the glorious 2018 events is always being updated and corrected to keep an eye out for new events!
