Saturday 18th July, Small Press Day 2020 

A celebration of self-publishing, DIY culture, and grassroots comics across the U.K and Ireland.

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.

We continued to build on this trend in 2017 and 2018, and in 2019, we celebrated the biggest Small Press Day to date.

2020 sees our fifth birthday and in celebration of being five years old, we plan to make Small Press Day bigger, better, and bolder. We’re busy behind the scenes getting things in place so keep checking back here and follow us twitter for the latest updates… in the meantime to whet your appetite; click here for our glorious SPD 2019 map – a snapshot of all the fantastic Small Press Day events that took place last year.
