The Free Hetherington Zine Fair was a zine, small press and independent publishing fair held on 2nd June 2011 (3pm-7pm) in Glasgow, Scotland. It was part of an ongoing student occupation of a university building.

The event was organised and curated by Robert Wringham of New Escapologist magazine.

Prior to the event, the following description was posted to the Free Hetherington's blog: "the upstairs space at the Free Hetherington will host the work of zinesters and indie publishers from Glasgow and beyond. Loads of zine genres will be on display and available to buy or swap: anarchist, feminist, queer, craft, culture-jamming, anti-consumerist, student activist, punk, environmentalist and more. We’re expecting tables from New Escapologist, Kleinzeit and the celebrated Lock Up Your Daughters. The event aims to get zinesters of all stripes together, to get some lovely radical ink onto Glaswegian fingertips, and to contribute to the occupation. Come along and see a nice cross-secion of the local zine-o-sphere and indie publishing experiments."
