Bristol Comic and Zine Fair returns in October

Bristol Comic and Zine Fair 2018

The Bristol Comic and Zine Fair returns on Saturday 6th October 2018, celebrating the world of DIY and independent publishing. The fair brings together artists, writers, and publishers from across Bristol and further afield for a one-day market.

Established in 2011 to give artists interested in self-publishing a chance to sell their work and to invite new audiences to see what the UK’s vibrant DIY arts scene is up to, the show is now in its eighth year.

BCZF will be held at The Station, Bristol from 12 noon until 5.30pm, a city-centre space run by The Creative Youth Network to provide a place for young people to meet, develop their talent, and get advice and support.

Formerly a fire station and then an artists’ space, the Station now offers a cafe, rehearsal facilities, meeting rooms and event spaces for the local community. The venue is in Bristol city centre,  approximately five minutes walk from Bristol Bus Station and 20 minutes walk from Bristol Temple Meads Train Station.
