Dear Friends of Hot Bed Press

Following Government measures and advice to limit the spread of the coronavirus Hot Bed Press will shut down from this Friday; 20th March at 5.00pm.

At present we anticipate the closure to be until mid to late June, but we will be making decisions based on the national situation and advice/directives from the government and Public Health England. We will be updating e-bulletins, social media and website posts.

We hope that everyone comes through this difficult period in good health. We will be doing our bit to make sure Hot Bed Press opens in good health too and to be as strong as ever.

Over the coming weeks and months we will also be looking at ways in which we can raise money in innovative and exciting printed fashion to try to make up for some of the inevitable losses we will be encountering.

Look out for a new amazing limited edition screen-print in 5 colours from artist Raul Gutierrez, who designed and painted our lovely mural. We will be selling a very limited edition of these for £50 each. All money will go towards Hot Bed Press; Thanks Raul!!

This will also herald the launch of Hot Bed Press Editions; a new scheme to promote the best in fine art prints and raise money towards special projects. The early success of this exclusive print, specially commissioned as a fundraiser will pave the way for Hot Bed Press Editions to be a regular feature.

We have a few other plans up our sleeves to help keep Hot Bed Press alive and kicking, but the current situation is a real threat to us unless we have strong support in the coming difficult months.

Please carry on supporting us. It is essential that we have money coming in to keep us afloat for when we open again.

Stay safe! We will see you all soon

Sean and the Team at Hot Bed Press
