The Alternative Press Fair 2009 in London has just been announced, bringing together the worlds of alternative comics, zines, self-produced art-books, poetry and diy/punk culture for one amazing day, like a great colourful blacmange that you can’t eat.
It's a good opportunity to meet the artists, see their work, buy some if you like it. Then relax and enjoy an exciting evening of music, song and melody, starring the Singing Sensation of the Nation, Mr. Trent Miller (& The Skeleton Jive).
Taking place on Sunday 1st February 2009, 12pm to 6pm (music to late) at the St. Aloysius Social Centre, 20 Phoenix Road, NW1 1TA, this event is free to all good men and women everywhere.
