Bookfair publicity ready, help needed with distro

Can you take some around your area?

flyerfront_final1Publicity posters and flyers for the Bristol anarchist bookfair 2010 are now printed and ready to go. We have 500 colour A3 posters, 5000 double-sided A5 colour flyers, and a number of black & white posters that have been sent in to us. Now we need help getting them out and about to the wider Bristol and south west public, so that they know about the event and can be introduced to anarchist ideas and practices.

Bristol’s anarchist bookfair on 13 September at the Island was a vibrant, colourful affair that was absolutely rammed with people for much of the day.

The sun kept shining and people kept coming to this explicitly anarchist event. We estimate over 500 people visited, in addition to the stallholders, meeting organisers, cafe crew and bookfair organisers. A varied bunch they were too, as the city centre location appears to have attracted a numner of interested visitors from outside the usual circles.

Meetings/workshops and films were well attended, much chating occurred at stalls, vast amounts of info, ideas and literature were were exchanged, and the vegan cafe did a roaring trade. Anarchist and other banners adorned the venue walls inside and out, and a number of banners were also hung in the city centre. Large numbers of the CoMutiny free paper ‘Evening Pest’ were handed out to passersby and elsewhere in the city centre, as the bookfair also launched the week of CoMutiny events.
