Gather: Off The Page

This event has happened

We’re back – and so excited to be able to *gather* together again IRL, celebrating lots of new things! Gather is back!

So what’s new? A new name (goodbye Glug, hello Gather!) An awesome new venue (The Crossing!) A new BD Magazine about the West Mids creative community (half price with your Gather ticket!) Four fantastic new speakers (all magazine masters!) and plenty of new news… (about BDF, our new shop & more!) …plus some new street food! What more could you want?

Speaking will be Holly Hollister (Bab Mag & Selextorhood) John Joseph Holt (LAW Magazine) Ella Paradis (The Black Explorer) and Andrew Diprose (The Ride & WIRED).

Whether it’s your first time, or umpteenth, we hope you can join us on Thurs 21st April in Digbeth to socialise, enjoy an evening of inspiring talks, and come away with a new magazine celebrating our scene. Tickets are just £15 (inc booking fee) with a copy of the magazine, or £10 without. Additional copies of the mag will be available to purchase on the night for £10 (+ buy 5 and get 1 free).

Introducing the new Birmingham Design magazine

Available for half price when you purchase tickets to Gather: Off the Page.

*Birmingham Design Issue One* is our first (and hopefully not our last!) printed publication, celebrating the West Mids creative community.

Inside its 110 vibrant B5 pages you’ll find a varied collection of interviews, features, opinion pieces, conversations and profiles — we hope it’s a fitting introduction to our scene.

Beautifully printed by Birmingham’s finest family printers, Clarkeprint, it features a stunning full-bleed wrap created especially for this issue by Super Freak – available in 2 colourways – a signature SF colour explosion, and an on-brand BD blue variant.

Too special to spoil with cover lines, this very special uncoated 6-colour metallic silk cover includes a spot varnish and comes with an A5 sticker sheet so you can decide whether to keep it clean or sticker-it-up!

This first issue includes: Super Freak, Common Curiosity, Foka Wolf, Imbue, Sleep Sparrow, Old Bort, QTRMSTRS, Harpers Hill, Seven 9 Signs, Doaly, Lewes Herriot, Lou Chorley, Keith Dodds, Minima, Jointworks, Outspoken, Pickle Illustration, Ted Jones, Tina Jiwa, Mary Hemmingway and Abbie Reilly + lots more…

We’ll be donating 10% of the profits from this issue to WithUkraine – a platform set up by the Embassy of Ukraine to the UK to consolidate international efforts in raising funds to provide humanitarian support to Ukraine and its people.

Add to your basket at checkout to get 50% off.
