Following the success of 2013’s event, the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair Collective has reconvened and are making plans for next year’s Bookfair. Saturday 26th April 2014 has been marked down as the date so make sure to put it in your diaries! We are also very pleased to announce that we will be returning to the Trinity Centre. (local map)
With a wide range of talks covering everything from anarchism and education to extreme energy and prison abolition; over 60 stalls; an outdoor space and activities (including a bouncy castle!); the Radical History Zone at Hydra Bookshop; Permananet Culture Now marquee & permaculture in the Trinity garden; wicked vegan cafe run by Kebele cafe; and a lively after party at The Croft, the 2013 Bookfair set itself a high standard that we hope to match and surpass this year!

We want to put the Fayre back into Bookfair.
Want to make that coconut shy with David Camerons face on, how about a pin the black mask on an anarchist, anarchist tug of war, use your imagination to help us make the Fayre a fun day to remember.
This years bookfair is at the Trinity centre for the first time and we have a great outdoor lawn space to use for anarchist fayre fun. Are you a performer, artist, juggler, hooper, or people who just have a good idea for the Fayre. Think of it as a village fete with a anarchist edge, it’s DIY – we are open to any ideas. We do have zero budget so you would have to be self sufficient, but when did money ever stop an anarchist from doing anything 🙂 Also if anyone can run some good kids activities, that would be great as we want to make it a good ‘un for the next generation of rabble rousers. We don’t expect people to do stuff all day, it could just be a half hour activity, or a short performance, or whatever takes your fancy – obviously all this will be weather permitting! So to get involved we have a meeting this Wednesday 6th March at Kebele, 7pm start, focusing on the fayre in particular – so come along and have a chat! If you cant make it then email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas/offers. Continue reading Bristol Anarchist Book FAYRE Needs You
