BICS, 2006+ programmes

I've looked previously at the programmes produced to accompany various British comic festivals...

Bristol comic expo (2004-2014) is here
London comic festival 2003 is here
Kev Sutherland festival original art is here
A 'Lawless 2019' miscellany is here
Boys and Girls exhibitions of the 1950s and '60s is here
Glasgow comic art convention is here
Edinburgh art convention is here
UKCAC - part 1 is here
UKCAC - part 2 is here
London Super Comic Con is here

In keeping with that theme I'll today start looking at the (A5 sized programmes) produced to accompany the Birmingham International Comics Show (BICS). I'm unclear as to how many of these programmes were published so if you could help fill in any gaps in my collection I'd love to hear from you...
