The Broadside Day is our annual one-day conference covering street literature in all its fascinating aspects – broadsides, chapbooks, songsters, woodcuts, engravings, last-dying speeches, catchpennies, wonder-tales, almanacs, fortune-tellers, and all kinds of cheap printed material sold to ordinary people in city streets, at country fairs, and from pedlar’s packs up and down the country in past centuries.
The Incorporated Society of Musicians is running a one day career development day for musicians of any genre and through a partnership with EFDSS we can offer 4 musicians a free place worth £20.
