(en) Britain, London anarchist Bookfair 2010 23d October 10am to 7pm

Date Tue, 10 Aug 2010 13:03:15 +0300

We have now booked the venue for the 2010 bookfair. We will, for the fourth year running, be holding the event at Queen Mary’s, University of London on the Mile End Road. The date for the 2010 bookfair will be SATURDAY 23RD OCTOBER from 10am to 7pm. ---- Please note, our new email address is now mail [@] anarchistbookfair.org.uk ---- If you or your group are involved in anything connected with anarchist theory or practice and want to book a stall or meeting we will be taking bookings from about June/July onwards. Please visit us again then for a booking form. ---- This year, apart from the wide variety of anarchist groups and individuals having meetings, we are hoping to have a few surprises. Watch this space. ---- We need help publicising the bookfair far and wide this year.

We want to get more people along to find out what we all do and say. We want to aim at those who may not have heard much about anarchism, apart from the rubbish on the TV.
We want to start making anarchism a threat again. So, if you can help by taking leaflets or posters to distribute (especially in London) please email us at mail[@]anarchistbookfair.org.uk letting us know how many you want and we will get them to you.

The 2010 Bookfair

As capitalism collapses around us in the market of ideas the anarchist pound is bouyant and the 28th London Anarchist Bookfair is back at Queen Mary College in London’s East End. A big thank you to everyone who helped make last year’s bookfair run smoothly and to you all for respecting the space. Last year we have 50 meetings, 100 stalls, an all day cabaret starring assorted ranters, poets, singers and comics; all day film showings and, two kids spaces. We are planning more of the same in 2010.

Stalls will again be split between the Great Hall and the Octagon room, which means that there will be more space and the whole bookfair will be wheelchair accessible. Please contact the info stall for wheelchair lift passes if you need one. If you have any other access requirements, please let us know in advance if possible so we can meet your needs. If you are Deaf and require BSL interpreting and/or speech-to-text provision, please give us as much notice as possible and we will do our best to organise these.

To discuss any specific access needs, please contact us at access@anarchistbookfair.org.uk . At the bookfair please go to the info stall for further details.

Next to the Octagon room will be an all day tea, coffee and snack stall (until 6pm).

The creche will be signposted, and the ‘older kids room’ is also in the basement below the Octagon Room.

We have loads going on - see the rest of the website, for a run down of the meetings and other events. More will be added as we get nearer to October.

Please don’t forget this is all organised by a small collective – so any help would be very much appreciated. This year, more than ever, we need your donations to break even – the room and table hire have gone up and we may be over a grand down again. So, any donations or funds from benefit gigs would come in very handy.

Last Word

Anarchists all over the UK are putting on successful events – bookfairs in Bristol, Manchester, Bradford, Norwich, Oxford, Sheffield and Durham as well as Newcastle’s Projectile festival. No-one can say that anarchists can’t organise. These are great social events and a real opportunity to spread anarchist ideas as well as debating them.

We know anarchist politics aren’t only about organising a bookfair. All of us in the Bookfair collective would choose a big, effective, militant anarchist movement over a successful bookfair. Let's use these events to take things forward.
