The Bristol Anarchist Bookfair

On 20th April there will be the third appearance of this literary and cultural gathering that showcases these revolutionary ideas.

 

Feria del libro 03For the third year running, the city of Bristol will host the Anarchist Bookfair with the aim of creating a space for the exchange of materials, experiences and communication that is committed to a different way of understanding reality and practising subversion.

The fair is a hub for communication and the diffusion of anarchist ideas. To this end, throughout the day, there will be chats, debates, concerts and cultural activities to reflect that philosophy of thinking and life.

Feria del libro 01Moreover, there will be a permanent display of written material from more than a dozen publishers, bookshops and British distributors who, together with individuals and organisations, form the UK anarchist movement.

Alongside the fair and with the aim to recoup funds for the organising bodies of this event (Anarchist Bookfair Collective and Bristol Defendant Solidarity), an alternative music concert will be held at The Croft pub.

Feria del libro 05To date, the Belgian groups Usual Suspects and Cop On Fire, as well as the group Salford Class Actions, are expected to perform.

The night will also be enlivened by DJs Batko, Davros, Spalding, DJ Orange, Dan Ominous and Pip Bin (The Large Society).

The performances will start at 8pm, coinciding with the end of the bookfair, and will last until 2am.

The event is organised by Bookfair Collective, a group of people brought together for altruistic reasons in the spring of 2008 in order to make people aware of those publications that discuss anarchist ideology.

The fair will take place on Saturday 20th April from 11am to 6pm at the Trinity Centre (Trinity Road, BS2 0NW Bristol). The concert will take place meanwhile at The Croft (117-119 Stokes Croft BS1 3RW Bristol) from 8pm to 2am.
