Create a Letterpress Print Workshop

Chris will teach a small group the basics of traditional letterpress printing. After some basic prep in general principles and typography (if you’re unfamiliar), you’ll learn how to hand-set type on a composing stick, transfer it to a chase and lock it up for printing. From there you’ll learn how to ink up, operate and clean an Adana 8×5 tabletop press, the most popular of ‘starter’ presses.

The Belper Games Weekender 2018

The Smallprint Co is holding a letterpress workshop at the Games:

The Belper Games returns again for another weekend of madness, fun and music!

We start on Friday 20th July with our movie night films FINDING NEMO & SCHOOL OF ROCK, and the beer & cider festival at our outdoor charity bar.

Entry is FREE (Friday only) for everyone, although donation buckets will be scattered around should you wish to part with a spare pound 🙂

Saturday is Games day where 36 teams will battle it out for the crown in the ‘It’s A Knockout’ competition.

Alongside the Games we have a stack of local musicians playing on 3 stages all day and evening, real ale & cider festival at our outdoor charity bar, childrens rides and attractions, many stalls, dog agility, show ground and food vendors.

After the madness of Saturday, Sunday is what we like to think of as our festival in a day. We have some amazing local musicians performing across 2 stages including the amazing FEROCIOUS DOG!

An altogether more chilled out affair.

We continue with the beer festival and we’ve got a whole bunch of creative workshops for the kiddies too! Dog Agility is also back for Sunday so bring your pooches and have a go!

Hopefully it will be nice and sunny again and you can bring your blankets and picnics and listen to some truly excellent music. We also have a theme this year which is ROCK (of any sort)

Very limited camping is also available for the whole weekend, grab it while you can!

Last year you helped raise £37,000 for our charities and local causes taking our total raised over the years to £121,000, which is just mind blowing!

Ticket prices for this year are as follows-

Adults (14 & over) – £6
Children – (6 – 13) – £3
OAP – £5
5yrs and under go FREE
Weekend ‘No Frills’ Camping £10/pitch

TICKETS ON SALE NOW – http://buytickets.at/thebelpergames/146792

We hope to see you all again (and more) for the whole weekend so we can smash more fundraising records!
