Make & Print Market

Showcasing Newcastle’s Small Press Scene!

Our city is full of self publishers, print makers and small press groups. We’ve been welcoming them to the Make & Mend market for years but we felt it was time to really show off what the Newcastle zine scene and self publishing community had to offer. Over four dates in 2019 we held the Make & Print Market, a zine fair, print market and small press comic con all rolled into one, in the Grainger Market, Newcastle city centre.

Are you an artist, zine maker, writer or small press publisher? Send us a message and get involved. Invite your friends using our Facebook event.
