Small Press Day 2024 Festival

Small Press Day is back! And this time we're calling it a Festival!! The yearly event that takes place in shops across the country celebrating their local independent talent, exciting emerging creators and wonderful self-published artists (many thanks to SPD creators Broken FrontierAlternative Press and David Ziggy Greene). This year, Small Press Day will be on Saturday 17th August 2024, from 11am until 6pm at Gosh!

At Gosh! this year, we'll be hosting Small Press Day Festival with over 40 guests featuring the country's most wonderful and talented artists. Throughout the day, we'll have several signings back-to-back where you can meet the artists, check out their work and treat yourself to some lovely goodies! They'll be comics, zines, prints, badges, stickers! Plenty of amazing items on show! It's a great opportunity to find some exciting new comics and support your local artists too. Throughout the day, our guests will even be working on a comic together, right in front of your very eyes! The DIY comics scene and small press community are things we truly cherish at Gosh! and so we're proud to be able to present this truly staggering line-up of creators this year. This is the perfect chance for you to discover your new favourite comics artists!
