Yea, someone else should chime in. I wonder what happened to the others. If it carries on like t his we might as well mee tin Halesowen..


Derby's not amazing. It's got some sort of film gallery/archive or something, but I;ve never been in (and I can't find it online), a vegan shop, and, um, I know of nothing else. Oh, some decent pubs.

I've never really been to Derby; only through it, so that might be fun. Yes suggestions would be good; hopefully someone else will make one...

I'm up for travelling too, I suppose we could go to Cov but I don't really know the place well at all. Notts is always good. I suppose there's Derby, but is anyone here even in Derby?


I'm definitely open to suggestions.

Ah I see :/ yeah I'm popping down; having to coach it this year though.
Hmm yeah we could do Brum again; we'll have to see who else is coming along and where they're coming from. I don't mind travelling tbh, but you're right, there are a bunch of places we could go in Brum. As for other places, Nottingham went down well, I know Petrova's from Coventry...and that's about the extent of my knowledge of the Midlands...
Does anyone else have any ideas / come from anywhere else in the Midlands..?

No Londoning for me. I am all hell of broke :( You going down?


I dunno, I'd vote for Brum cos I live in Brum and I am selfish and lazy. I wonder if we could use a room at We Are Birmingham? If it's sunny we could go hang out with the Pigeons by the Cathedral. I'm half tempted to nominate Kings Heath cos then I can just roll out of bed to meet zinesters. And we have a vegan greasy spoon now ;-)


You got any ideas? 

Comment by Lee Taylor on April 12, 2011 at 4:28pm
Yeah, that sounds like a good idea Ray; it has indeed been ages. Any thoughts on where / when? You at the London Zine Symp. on Sunday by the way? :)

Should we have another meet-up soon? It's been AGES and the sunshine is lovely.

The Birmingham Zine Fest is busy being organized! The day of the zine fair is July 9th and it will be held at the http://wearebham.com/ shop.


However, I'm going back to Canada in a couple of weeks, so won't have much to do with organizing it. If any of you guys are go check out the website and give them an email. http://www.birminghamzinefestival.com/


(Or if you can't get in touch with them send me a message and I'll get you in touch.)
