Sumer Is Icumen In — Dirty Bristow Issue One Launch Party

You know how we said that Dirty Bristow would have no ads, and no rules? The way we can do that is that each issue comes with it’s own special events to launch and offset the costs. The first, the biggest, and the only way to get your hands on Issue One on day one is to come to our Summer Fête.

The Small Hamlet Of Dirty Bristow In Borsetshire Invites You To Its Summer Fête

The mayor and vicar of the small fictional hamlet of Dirty Bristow have collected a huge variety of traditional musics, comedy, stalls and games — and have arranged for them to happen:

  • on Saturday 28th August
  • at The Edge in Digbeth
  • for the tiny tiny fee of £5 — which includes a copy of Dirty Bristow issue one (magazine usually £3.50)

the grand opening is at 6pm and the fun is expected to last all night.

So far confirmed is live music from 8-Bit Ninjas and Glatze and comedy from Tom Lennon and Harry Vale. There’ll be Punch & Judy,Splat The Rat, a Tug O’ War — artists versus writers , a Teddy Bear Bungee, Guess The Weight Of The Cake all the stuff you would expect at a traditional British summer fête.

And there’ll be a beer tent.
