This years Bristol Anarchist Bookfair will be held across two neighbouring venues, both of which stepped in at the last minute when we could no longer use our original venue.
Stalls will be hosted at:
The Black Swan,
438 Stapleton Road, Easton,
Workshops will be hosted at:
BASE (formerly Kebele)
14 Robertson Road, Easton,
There is a bus stop outside the venue (for busses from the centre), and directly opposite (for busses from the East / North). The following services stop there:
You can catch it from: Centre, Old Market
Or heading west from: Emersons Green, Downend, Fishponds, UWE Frenchay campus (48a only).
You can catch it from: Ashton Vale, Bedminster, Centre, Old Market.
Or heading west, from Southmead Hospital, Lockleaze.
There is some on-street parking available near to the venues. However it is limited, so for the benefit of residents and those with mobility issues, we would request you only travel by car when necessary (and car share if you can), and if you are traveling by car and do not have a mobility issue, please park at least 10minutes walk from the venue to leave closer spaces for those who need them.
There are large car parks at the Eastgate Centre. The IKEA car park being the closest, with a 300metre (av 4minute) walk if leaving via the lower exit onto New Stadium Road. However parking here is limited to 2hours, and is stated as being for customers only.
Due to engineering works there will be no trains running to Stapleton Road train station. If arriving by train you will need to get to the venue via bus from Temple Meads or Parkway. There are some rail-replacement services in operation, but often with long journey times. Old Market bus stop is a ten minute walk from Temple Meads, and you can catch the above busses from it.
Whilst Stapleton Road itself is busy, there are bike routes from the centre as far as Fox Park, which is around five minutes walk from the venue (the bike route between Fox Park and the Black Swan is closed due to engineering works on the train line over Stapleton Road).
There are numerous Bike Racks along Stapleton Road and St Marks Rd, you may have to walk down both to find space during the bookfair. Please lock up your bike responsibly and ensure you are not blocking the pavement.
