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.

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.
