Manchester anarchists announce December bookfair

One last anarchist bookfair has been announced for 2017 with the Manchester & Salford Anarchist Bookfair on Saturday December 2nd.

The event, which is being sponsored by well-loved absurdist libertarian publication The Cunningham Amendment, is taking advantage of new digs available at radical social centre Partisan, located at 19 Cheetham Hill Road, M4 4FY not far from Victoria Station and Manchester Arena.

It’s early doors for bookings, but 15 stalls have been announced so far and the bookfair, which will be running 11am-6pm, will be followed by an after party at the same venue.

The Manchester Anarchist Bookfair is one of the longest-running in Britain, having been founded 16 years ago at the premises of environmental charity project MERCi in Beswick, east Manchester and supporters maintain a wonderful archive of posters related to previous bookfairs here.

Organisers are currently taking bookings for stalls (£20 per table) and talks. To apply, contact the group at [email protected] with group name, description of stall/talk/website links/special requirements and pay by bank transfer to:

Partisan, which was set up recently as the first overtly radical space in Manchester for several years, has recently successfully raised funding for access works, but as yet the venue is only accessible via stairs.
