About The Anarchist Bookfair

The Anarchist Bookfair has been running in London since 1983 and has become a renowned and well-loved London cultural institution. It was the first such bookfair worldwide and inspired similar events of various sizes both in the UK and across the globe. The bookfair provides a unique hub of activity for the alternative and radical political community, a vital space for rabble-rousing, community organising, activism and discussions. Whether you are an anarchist yourself, involved in a local community struggle, or simply curious, you are warmly invited to attend.
