Accessible Hour

We are pleased to be introducing Accessible Hour at Bristol Comic & Zine Fair 2017.

Accessible Hour runs from 11am to 12pm. This time is designated for those with extra mobility needs, and people who have difficulty in large crowds.

We ask that people without additional accessibility needs come to BCZF after 12pm.

As BCZF is a free event, it is possible to come and go as you please all day. The fair can get very busy, in previous years peak time has been between 2pm-5pm

Please take a look at our accessibility page here: https://bczf.co.uk/accessibility/

BUCKS QUIZZ BCZF SPECIAL

You are cordially invited to a BUCKS QUIZZ BCZF SPECIAL so put on your best tie, cancel your plans (and cancels your best pals plans too), and smash those piggy banks!

WAIT WHAT?
For this years fundraiser we’ve enlisted the help of Bristol’s very own Quizzard to test your general knowledge, comics credentials, and zine making abilities in a very special BCZF edition of the best pub quiz in town. We’re also bringing back Alice Urbino who’ll be with us all night drawing on the spot animal portraits of your lovely lot! Everyone wants to see their face on a dolphins body, right? AND IF THAT’S NOT ENOUGH: face painting, raffle prizes AND an unlucky dip!

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Just like last year you’ll need to exhange your human money for special BCZF tokens on the door! These can be exhanged for nightmarish animal portraits, entry into the quiz, raffle tickets, and face painting. And WE turn that money into Bristol Comic and Zine Fair. Everyone wins!

WHY DO WE NEED YOU?
The Bristol Comic and Zine Fair team works hard to keep tables affordable and the event free to attend for the public. This year we’re adding a slate of free workshops and talks to our programming and we need a little extra cash to cover the costs! We’re getting closer thanks to your generous support but we’re still a couple of hundreds away from our target!

Thank You!

Thank you so much to everyone who came down to The Volunteer Tavern on Saturday night. We managed to raise the money we needed to run our Creative Youth Network workshop series in September.

Special thanks to Peter Gibbs for hosting our fundraiser and putting on a stellar performance as the frontman of FAKE NEWS. Also to Rhi B for encouraging the audience to part with their dough and support our project. And of course to the rest of the band: we couldn’t have done it without you!

Thanks pals, you ROCK!
