Another year another fantastic fair. We were absolutely thrilled with how this year went. The fire station was crammed with creatives and attendees every moment. So thank you to all who participated and attended, it was wonderful seeing you all engage with the fair this year in such enthusiastic droves.

We had 58 tables with over 100 individual artists and countless pieces of work, all within our delightful new venue of the Fire station at the ECA.

On top of the wealth of stalls we had a diverse range of talks and workshops. It was inspiring to get a group of extremely talented individuals to share those talents with us.

Our fourth years provided a bountiful supply of cake and tea to fund their upcoming drip to the annual D&AD New Blood Festival.

A highlight of this year was “The BOOKMARKS Bumper Zine”. Our amazing print technician Mina and Emily from Crisp Shop managed the incredible feat of creating a zine in a day, that had a contribution from every stall. A mammoth undertaking that culminated in an edition of 60 beautifully printed Risograph zines.

It all wouldn’t be possible with out our own Lucy Roscoe and Jane Hyslop. 4 years on, they have worked so hard to make every year an undoubtably excellent event. They have exceeded themselves this year in making the best yet. So a huge congratulations to them.
