Way back in 2019 we opened the doors to our old office for the very first Vice Press Open House. We had a great time, with over 200 people turning up on the day, checking out prints and chatting. We did plan to run one every year, then a funny thing happened that prevented us from arranging large gatherings…
Since then we have been thinking about how we could make Open House bigger and better. We have moved offices to a new unit, and while we love it, it isn’t the best place to hold a gathering, especially if the same volume of people turn up. So we have hired a dedicated event space in the centre of Sheffield called Trafalgar Warehouse, a 1930’s industrial space - WITH A BAR! With all of that extra space we thought, why not invite a bunch of our friends, too?
With that, Open House has turned into a mini poster and art print convention and social, which will be held on the 24th of June 2023 from 11am until 6pm.
To help things run as smoothly as possible, and as Trafalgar Warehouse has a 300 capacity, the event will be ticketed. Tickets will cost just £10 each which will go towards hiring the venue, subsidising the space for guests and also include a goodie bag with a few freebies which we will announce closer to the time. You can purchase tickets now via our home page.
The event is open to all ages, but due to limited spaces, there is only one standard ticket tier.

We will also be releasing an exclusive Open House t-shirt, with all profits being donated to the Sheffield Children's Hospital Charity. Printed by the amazing Rogue Print Co, who will also be joining us for Open House, and designed by Matt Ferguson and Florey. You don't even have to be coming to Open House to get yours as we will also be shipping these. You can pick yours up from 2pm on Friday the 12th of May.
We can't wait for everyone to be able to get back together. This is something we have been looking forward to for a long time and who knows what Open House will evolve into over the future!
