Event Description

A Wayzgoose was traditionally an annual entertainment given by a master printer to his workmen on or about St Bartholomew's Day, marking the end of summer and the start of the season of working by candlelight. It later came to refer to an annual outing or dinner (where a goose may have been served) for newspaper printers.


Hot Bed Press are delighted to be re-introducing this age-old tradition on Saturday 30th April & Sunday 1st May, between 11.00am – 5.00pm


Wonder in amazement at the crafts and skills, gasp at the beauty and marvel at the quirky ingenuity of it all. With plenty of stalls showing lots of lovely goodies, from printed t-shirts and textiles, to artists’ books, birthday cards and limited edition zines there will plenty to spend your money on.


Come and see artists at work with free demonstrations in letterpressing and screenprinting. Why not roll up your sleeves and have a go yourself?


Get involved in ‘Unravel’, a project that will create a hand painted film that correlates in length with the 874 miles between John O'Groats and Land's End. We will be holding a workshop to contribute to this exciting and epic film. Come and join in, every little bit helps.


Best of all, it’s all free! And while no geese will be served during this Wayzgoose, tea and cakes certainly will be.


So grab your purse (or wallet) and skip along to Hot Bed Press, 1st Floor, The Casket Works, Cow Lane, Salford M5 4NB. Follow the pointy fingers and you’ll find us beneath the bunting...now there’s an offer you can’t refuse.


And there’s more. This is part of the Sights From The Other City, which brings together Islington Mill, The Creative Media Centre Manchester Modernists, St. Philip’s Church and the opening of the new Chapel Gallery, all on and around the Chapel Street area. It is also coordinated to link with the ever growing and highly popular Sounds From The Other City with a buzz of music and events that will have Salford buzzing with activity.
