Alternative Press get on their soapbox

Published On August 17, 2014 | By Richard Bruton | Comics, Comics Calendar, Conventions and events

The Alternative Press group have been in touch with their latest event, the AP Picnic.

It takes place at the historic Speaker’s Corner, Hyde Park, Sunday 31st August, 1 – 5pm. The plan is to have an afternoon of “picnicing and zine-making and celebrate our right to free speech from the AP Soapbox!

Here’s what AP have to say:

“Bring something to eat and a pencil or two, and draw inspiration from the traditions of Speaker’s Corner, the regular speakers, and the hecklers, in a collaborative zine-making session. Step up onto our soapbox and exercise your right to speak. All welcome – whether ignited by the need to share poetry, readings from zines, or simply to get something off your chest.”
