Conference on Street Literature and Cheap Print
Saturday 11 February 2023 | 9:45am-5:00pm
Cecil Sharp House, London and online
The Broadside Day is the annual one-day conference for people interested in Street Literature and Cheap Print in all its fascinating aspects – broadsides, chapbooks, songsters, woodcuts, engravings, last dying speeches, catchpennies, news (real and fake), almanacs, carol sheets, wonder tales, and all kinds of cheap printed ephemera sold or distributed to ordinary people in the streets and at fairs, from pedlars’ packs, and in back-street shops, up and down the country.
Organised jointly by the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library and the Traditional Song Forum, the 2023 Broadside Day will be an in-person event with live online streaming.
English Folk Dance and Song Society, Cecil Sharp House,
