Nottingham Print & Publishing Fair 2018

Bees Make Honey Creative Community & Pop Press present
The 2nd annual Nottingham Print & Publishing Fair 2018
Sunday 9th December 11am – 5 pm
The Malt Cross basement event & workshop spaces

After the success of the first NPPF which took place at Notts Writers’ Studio in September 2017, we’re back with a wintery, festive edition of the event. Bringing together artists, writers, and publishers with a love of books, paper and all things inky, we’ll be offering a range of stalls plus print workshops for making cards and gifts. This year we’re collaborating with letterpress aficionados Pop Press who have a shop and studio just 2 doors down from the venue. We’re also delighted to be hosting the event at the newly reopened Malt Cross, one of the city’s most idiosyncratic arts venues.

What to expect: booksellers, small publishers, zine makers, print artists, papercut artists, writing organisations, print workshops, and a festive atmosphere.

This event is child-friendly but please note there are a few stairs to navigate if you’re bringing a buggy. Please ask in the bar if you require lift access for buggies or wheelchairs.
