Hydra Bookshop



Once again this year, on Saturday 25 April, friends from the Bristol Radical History Group have taken on organising a small Radical History Zone as a part of the Bristol anarchist bookfair.

Again they’ll be based at Hydra Bookshop all day, which is at 34 Old Market, Bristol BS2 0EZ – just a 5 minute walk from Trinity Centre – and running a series of 6 meetings starting at 12noon.

Hydra naturally also sells books, and coffee & cake!  Meanwhile a few of BRHG will also be running a bookstall up at the Bookfair in the Trinity Centre (on the 1st floor) – do check out their excellent series of local radical history pamphlets!

Here are the meeting titles for the RHZ programme, you can find the full description for each meeting on the BRHG website, on the Bookfair website, download it here as a pdf RHZ_full info and indeed as a Facebook event.
