Check out details of the forthcoming 5th Bristol Anarchist Bookfair on Saturday 20th April. Stalls and meeting/workshop space available. Kids space. Vegan Cafe. For info and bookings visit:

The Bookfair Collective has switched venues this year to somewhere with more outdoor space, and we’re a little earlier in anticipation of another hot April. Taking the outdoors theme a little further, expect a potential playfull mix of bookfair and fayre. But we remain deadly serious about the politics, we live in dramatic times. There is much to play for. Free up your day and join us for free.

Also, as part of Bookfair, Bristol Radical History Group will be running the Radical History Zone (RHZ) at the Hydra Bookshop (34 Old Market St, Bristol, BS2 0EZ). This is a series of talks/presentations/discussions and performances covering radical history.
