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.

Keb_20logo_textCafe at the Bookfair – the vegan cafe will be run once again byKebele Cafe & friends, on the ground floor at Trinity. There will be hot/cold drinks, snacks & cake available from 11am at latest, and main meals from about 1pm, all at very affordable prices. Proceeds from the Cafe help fund the Bookfair, and also a new roof at Kebele. Hydra Bookshop also sells coffee & cake at the Radical History Zone.

Kids Space – this will be facilitated by Bristol MAP, on the ground floor of Trinity, opposite the Cafe. There’ll be some comfy seating, soft toys, games, arts materials etc, and space for kids to move around freely. Please note this is not a supervised creche, you will need to remain with your children.
There will also be some kids activities outside in the Permaculture Garden, along with green space & a small adventure playground (weather permitting!).

After-Party & Fundraiser – there’ll be an After-Party fairly close by on the evening of the Bookfair, from 8’ish to late. Expect music, dancing, frivolity & drinking! It’ll be a split fundraiser for the Bookfair and a suitable local cause/campaign – but if we don’t need the money from it then we’ll give it all away. More info soon.
