Events

St Bride Library hosts a variety of print-related lectures, exhibitions and talks throughout the year, as well as talks and conferences on everything from poster design to handwriting, resulting in an exciting and vibrant series of events running the whole year round.

As well as our library events, we host live music and networking in the Theatre Bar, which also contains our Bar Gallery, showcasing beautiful work from artists, photographers and engravers.

Among the events that we run in the Theatre bar is the successful Print Networking Club and (ex-)Printers' Drinks, which both take place on a monthly basis. We also host a variety of external events, including talks, workshops and round tables.

St Bride Foundation also plays host to a series of events dedicated to the print industry, including the popular Type Tuesday series and the Designer Book Binders COVERED exhibition, held annually at St Bride.

Please Note - Refunds are not offered on either Conferences or Events.
