In a unique and rare event, B&D Studios host a celebration of one of the most underrated art forms. Social Enterprise venture Verbal Remedy brings Festival Of The Zine to the Newcastle arts venue on Saturday 28th May.

The small-circulation, self-published books deal with all manner of niche, controversial and always fascinating content. DIY and accessible to all, there’s a very lo-fi charm, and this festival will serve as a great introduction for those less familiar with the format. There’ll be a great collection of zines to buy (limited edition and regular print), a chance to make your own at the craft table and get involved in an artform that is popular the world over. Suppliers confirmed include Clara Heathcock’s Facebook Chats with Women, Girl Love Zine, Ingrid Boring (Mythologising Me Zine/Salford Zine Library) and Artificial Womb Zine plus dozens of one-off publications. There is never going to be a better chance to immerse yourself in all the wonderfulness zines can offer.

Festival Of The Zine comes to B&D Studios, Newcastle on Saturday 28th May.
