Cardiff Anarchist Bookfair / Ffair Lyfrau Anarchaidd Caerdydd

The Cardiff Anarchist Bookfair / Ffair Lyfrau Anarchaidd Caerdydda 2015

…Saturday 21st February at Cathays Community Centre…

“Bookfairs are the anarchist movement’s shop window and main gathering space outside protests.”

It’s been five years since one has been held in Cardiff.

“Ffeiriau llyfrau yw siop ffenestr y mudiad anarchaidd a’r prif gofod i gyfarfod ar ol protestiadau.”

Mae wedi bod yn bum mlynedd ers cynnal y ffair lyfrau anarchaidd diwetthaf yng Nghaerdydd.

Bookfair feedback & an anarcho-punk benefit gig

bookfairFirst up a massive thankyou to everyone who came down to the first Cardiff Anarchist Bookfair on the 23rd May, we feel the whole thing was a great success, most of the workshops were busy and around 250 people came through the door, all the stalls were happy with the reaction they got. We intend to do another one next year. If anyone has any feedback, we’d love to hear your comments.

What with the donations on the door and for tea, coffee and cake as well as a number of benefit gigs the bookfair ended up paying for itself which was very unexpected, we’re very grateful for all the donations! But as the machinery of Anarchism in south Wales rolls on, there’s always more things that need paying for. As such we’re having a Anarcho-solstice benefit gig on Saturday 20th June with Active Slaughter, Kilnaboy, Filthy Habits, Jesus Bruiser, Obscene in TJ’s, Newport. At only £5 entry, it’s a treat!Layout 1

A day of freedom, equality and inspiration

cardiffbookfairSince the first London Anarchist Bookfair in 1983, these events have been held around the world, spreading the vibrancy, history and diversity of the anarchist movement. The first Cardiff Anarchist Bookfair will feature talks, discussions and a space to network as well as stalls with books, magazines, newspapers, DVDs, CDs, t-shirts, badges and more, with contributions from local, national and international organisations, distributors, publishers, campaigns, activist groups and other anarchist collectives. After experiencing the movement we’ve got, the day will close with a panel discussion on ‘the kind of Anarchist movement we want’. Everyone with an interest is invited to contribute. 

Free. In more ways than one.

Limited spaces available for stalls & workshops – deadline 1st April.
