Welcome one and all to the Full Programme for The 7th Bristol Anarchist Bookfair, on Saturday 25th April 2015, from 11.00am – 6pm, at Trinity Centre, Trinity Rd, Bristol BS2 0NW, with Radical History Zone nearby at Hydra Bookshop. We’ll be seeing you very soon…
The Room with a View at the Bookfair is another of the five spaces at the Trinity Centre where different groups/individuals are contributing workshops. There is an emphasis on sharing information & experiences to generate debate, and interaction is positively encouraged. Remember that none of the speakers are professional politicians – just ordinary impassioned people like you and us – ensuring minimal spin & bullshit! You can see details of all the Bookfair meetings here.
The Breakout Room at the Bookfair is one of five spaces at the Trinity Centre where debates will rage and interaction is positively encouraged. Remember that none of the speakers are professional politicians – just ordinary impassioned people like you and us – ensuring minimal spin & bullshit!
Again they’ll be based at Hydra Bookshop all day, which is at 34 Old Market, Bristol BS2 0EZ – just a 5 minute walk from Trinity Centre – and running a series of 6 meetings starting at 12noon.
Hydra naturally also sells books, and coffee & cake! Meanwhile a few of BRHG will also be running a bookstall up at the Bookfair in the Trinity Centre (on the 1st floor) – do check out their excellent series of local radical history pamphlets!
The meetings are spread across 5 spaces, and plus we have the Soap Box outside for a mix of entertainment and ranting. There’s a wide range of topics up for discussion and debate, so come on down and join in. Ideas & Information for Action!
You can see the full timetable on the image below (click to enlarge), or you can read/download them from this pdf BF15_All meetings timetable.
We will shortly be adding all this info in more detail to the Workshops/Meetings page on the website. We’ll see you on the 25th.
Just 5 weeks to go now until the Bristol anarchist bookfair at The Trinity Centre in Bristol, and it’s all shaping up well. Even the political parties & politicians are doing their bit for us – by acting like the complete bunch of liars, cheats & weirdos that they are.
The election campaign is shaping up to be one of the most petty name-calling & posturing campaigns ever, with barely a policy debate in sight, and with yet more cuts being promised by just about all the parties. We make no apology for having nothing but hatred & contempt for the political parties and their ruling class masters – their time will come, the sooner the better!
Whilst they waste our time and yours, we have a few deadlines coming up:
– we still have a few Stall tables left, so if you want to book one in time to get listed in our printed programme you need to do it this week. Any Stall spaces booked after that willl only be listed online. For forms & info see the Stalls page.
– noon on Wednesday 25 March is the final deadline to submit a Workshop proposal. The Bookfair collective meets that evening to decide which 12 proposals go ahead at the Bookfair. For forms & info see the Workshops page.
– all our publicity has been printed and is being passed around. We could do with help sharing it online – you can copy images of posters etc from our Publicity page and share them online. You can also share our social media links with friends, networks & contacts:
On Crackbook (FB page) here – Bristolanarchistbookfair
On Crackbook (FB event) here – 7th Bristol Bookfair Radical History Zone – FB event and BRHG website
On Twitter – @bristolbookfair using this as our main hashtag #BABF2015 and also #AngrynotApathetic.
The printed programme for the Bookfair should be printed by about 10 April, and it’ll appear online by then too, so keep checking back. Other info will be made available as and when its confirmed, such as the After-Party! We’ll see you all on the 25 April, it’ll be great!
Kebele social centre is holding a community Open Day on Saturday 8 March (details on images), and welcomes anyone from the local neighbourhood to pop in, look around, and have a chat. This is the 20th year since the Kebele project started, and whilst it is open to the local community whenever it is actually open, it has made a specific effort to invite people along on Saturday. So come!
Kebele started in the autumn of 1995, when a bunch of activists in need of housing occupied the empty building. When Kebele was 18yrs old, we wrote this article about its history & purpose. Kebele is an overtly anarchist space, and is now guided by a clear set of principles. The Open Day is an opportunity for people to gain a better understanding of its aims and activities, and clarify any questions they may have. It’s also a chance to socialise, enjoy the vegan food from Kebele’s cafe, and find out about some of the many & varied anarchist activities in and around Bristol. So come!

Two discussion nights at Kebele social centre for local anarchists who’d like to discuss an anarchist response to the upcoming elections on 7th May 2015. Come along to sharpen your analysis & consider some options collectively…
Coming at you live and direct from east-central Bristol, just 13 days before the 2015 British General Election & local elections, we are pleased to invite you to the 7th Bristol Anarchist Bookfair – and there wont be a single lying, corrupt, austerity-enforcing, media-spinning politician in sight.
All Bookfair workshops/meetings/activities take place at Trinity Centre EXCEPT for the Radical History Zone, which is 5 minutes down the road at Hydra Bookshop, 34 Old Market, Bristol, BS2 0EZ (you can buy books at Hydra too!).
