Not the Anarchist Bookfair 2018

Not the Anarchist Bookfair 2018

Short url:

The London Anarchist Bookfair has been a crucial fixture in the anarchist calendar since 1983. This year the bookfair is on what -we hope- is a very brief hiatus. It is vital the tradition remains and the work of spreading anarchist ideas continues. To go some small way to filling the gap, the organisers of the London Radical Bookfair have proposed having a decentralised festival of anarchist ideas and action, involving as many of London’s anarchist leaning bookshops, social centres and campaign groups as are willing to take part.
We’re calling it #nottheanarchistbookfair.

The idea is simple: anarchist groups put on their own programme of events, concentrating on the dates of the weekend of 20-21st October 2018, and the programme is collated by us on our website and social media.

If you are in London and have an event that you would like included in the programme please let us know about it by emailing us at In future years we hope to expand the programme across the UK.

Hope you can get involved.
