Radical Bookfair

Short url: 


A second Radical Bookfair in Bristol, in just over 2 months, is being co-ordinated by Active Distribution at the Exchange on Old Market, BS2 0EJ, on Sunday 19th December, from 11.30am to 3.30pm. Hot on the heels of the previous one on 10th October, comes this timely little beauty, just in time for Bristol’s radicals to pick up some suitable gifts for subverting xmas, or alternatively grabbing themselves some good long reads to get their heads into until the xmas season of over-consumption has passed!

Active Distribution: “There’ll be new and second hand titles from radical publishers, zine makers and activists in addition to stalls from local campaigns groups. Fill your friends’ and family’s stockings with… radical ideas!
Pitchfork Cafe will also be there from 1-3pm knocking up tasty plant-based scran and raising money for grass roots projects, while the Exchange cafe will be serving up mulled ciders and mince pies, to help it feel festive and all.
This bookfair will take place in the middle of the Colston 4 trial, and stands in solidarity with the statue topplers. We, the people of Bristol, all toppled Colston! Show your support!
The bookfair is free to attend and numbers aren’t restricted, but COVID safety measures will be in place.
See you there!
Please bring both your bank cards and cash (not all stallholders have card machines!)
Radical Book Fair at the Exchange, 72-73 Old Market, Bristol, BS2 0EJ.”
