we have some new zines in stock and some old faves back in stock. we had a sweet care package from maranda containing copies of issues 36 – 42 of telegram, and we also took delivery of the latest issue five of sonorus, everyone’s favourite feminist harry potter fanzine!

also, the zine workshop that was supposed to happen yesterday at intra was sadly cancelled last minute due to the weather (lousy smarch weather) and it has been rescheduled to Saturday 31st March. (facebook event page)

updating this at the moment is a huge pain in the butt as our computer decided to die on Thursday (just in time for drag race all stars finale. i still haven’t seen it and i’m not sure when i will at this rate, the struggle is incredibly real) and typing on my phone is not great and wordpress isn’t the easiest thing to navigate on a small screen. still can dispatch orders just fine, don’t you worry. hopefully we’ll get a new soon and things can get back to normal, whatever that is.

The first fair was last year at DIY Space for London and it’s back for a second year in collaboration with Sutton House and Breaker’s Yard in Hackney! This year’s fair will include 20+ stallholders and an afterparty!

Entry to just the zine fair is free. Normal admission charges apply to visit the zine fair and the historic rooms. There will be a School of Anarchy exhibition throughout the house. Price of admission will also cover entry to the after party in the evening.

The National Trust is a charity, Sutton House is giving this space for free, if you wish to support the preservation of this important community space, please consider paying the admission charge if you are able to.

The zine fair and afterparty will be on the ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. Unfortunately the historic rooms are not wheelchair accessible. We have an accessible toilet which is also designated gender neutral – a first for the National Trust.

Sutton House Queered
Built in 1535 by Tudor Statesman Ralph Sadlier, Sutton House is the oldest domestic building in Hackney. Throughout its almost 500 year history, the house has been a boys’ school, a girls’ school, a church institute, offices, and a squat. The house is now owned by the National Trust, and has a strong focus on working with the local community. Sutton House was the first National Trust property to celebrate LGBT History Month, and the first to introduce a gender neutral toilet. Sutton House Queered is a year- long programme that aims to question and disrupt, to challenge and celebrate. Much like Sutton House’s varied and colourful history, Queer is fluid and ever-changing, and presents a great opportunity for us to explore the National Trust’s Prejudice and Pride theme, marking the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality.

School of Anarchy
In April 1985 a group of 8 squatters made Sutton House their home. They sent a letter to local residents which read:
“As you’ve probably noticed, something is happening at Sutton House- several of us have moved in and are hoping to convert it into a kind of community centre.”
They proposed opening the house to the public, running a café and arts and craft workshops for local community members. They renamed their new home ‘The Blue House’ and hosted rock concerts here. This short but colourful era in Sutton House’s unusual history lasted less than a year, but has left its mark on how we run today, the community are at the heart of everything we do. As well as decorating the house with vibrant graffiti art, some of which is retained today, the squatters wrote anti-fascist, anti-Thatcher and feminist political slogans on the doors of the rooms. Sutton House’s strong activist roots have inspired our Summer of Anarchy, which will explore LGBTQ activism.

this sunday (july 9th) we’re going to be lending a helping hand at the SICK! Zine Workshop at INTRA in rochester, kent.


SUNDAY JULY 9th 2017
@ INTRA, 337-341 High Street, Rochester, ME1 1DA


A workshop for those affected by invisible illnesses – guiding you to express yourself through words, images or collage to create a collaborative zine on this theme. Led by artist and printmaker Xtina Lamb, your contributions will be compiled into a small DIY publication – a ‘zine’, to be printed on INTRA’s Risograph machine. The zine will be available free to visitors of the Sick! exhibition at Sun Pier House in Chatham, Kent in August.

We’ll supply collage materials, typewriters (old school!), drawing supplies, glue, and will have lots of ideas to get you thinking about the ways you could contribute to the zine. Bring along any extra materials you’d particularly like to use to create the pages, or if you have sketchbooks or notebooks of writing – those would be great for the workshop too. But you don’t need to be a fantastic artist or an accomplished poet to take part, if you have experiences of invisible illness (either from your own ill health or those close to you), we would love to include your contributions.

Please choose the morning or afternoon session.
