To keep Bristol Comic and Zine Fair FREE to the public in 2016 a little fundraising is in order so bring your mates and your pocket money and help BCZF reach their target!!!

Live screen printing with Not Now – pull your own 2 colour screen print while you grab a pint with pals.

Ever wondered what you’d look like with a dogs body? Artists Alice Urbino, Ian Moore, and Tabitha Panter will sketch your likeness and your not-so-likeness!

In true BCZF fashion you’ll be able to pick up a brand new shiny zine or comic to take home. The only catch? It’s all in the luck of the draw!

Fancy a GF brownie or a slice of vegan lemon drizzle? Cakes anyone with a sweet tooth!

And what better way to finish off the evening than with a musical treat! Bands tba.

BCZF 2015 – Mission Complete!

Well that was another amazing, amazing Bristol Comic and Zine Fair!

Thank you so much to everyone who came, everyone who exhibited and everyone who helped us out, we couldn’t have done it without you.

A special thank you to the Creative Youth Network who run The Station, if you have a second, have a look at their site to see what they do, it’s really great stuff.

Papergirl Bristol not only threw us a great drink n draw the night before at the Surrey Vaults, but were all round helpers and ace people.

Also thanks to all at Roll for the Soul for providing us with a place to wind down afterwards, it was great to catch up with some of you there.

If you’re having BCZF withdrawal symptoms, we’ve added a selection of photos from the day below. Thanks Esme Betamax for being the official photographer for the day – they are beauts.

Lots of love

The BCZF Team
