Firstsite is delighted to announce that it will be staging Cultural Traffic, a fair for counterculture material, alongside a day of performance, poetry, music and film, on Saturday 18th February.

Free and open to all, the fair will feature over 40 dealers of new, rare and collectable books, zines, prints, posters, catalogues, vinyl and tapes, giving the public a unique opportunity to purchase an eclectic variety of items at affordable prices directly from the producers.

The hugely popular pop-up Syrian Café will return (between 10.30am and 3.30pm) with a special menu of delicious food, available to eat-in or take-away. And they’ll be joined by Firstsite’s newly launched coffee bar, a collaboration with social enterprise charity We Walk the Line – who’s ‘Wake Up and Smell the Coffee!’ project trains local people to develop the skills they need to find employment.

The day will be closed by a special screening of My Buddha is Punk (2015) at 6pm. Directed by Andreas Hartmann, the documentary centres on a young Burmese punk pursuing the dream of seeing the punk scene take off in Myanmar.
