We regret that due to uncertainty about the impact of COVID-19 means we have to cancel this year’s radical bookfair. We hope, however, to run some online events over the same weekend.

Please check back later if you are not on our mailing list

Mark the date!

25 tables of books, eight free talks, cafe on site

Last year at least 400 people came to our third radical bookfair, many staying most of the day to attend the talks by local, regional and national speakers.  We already have stall bookings from Northern Herald Books, Nottingham People’s History, Sparrow’s Nest, Ex-Libris, Motts and Derbyshire Labour History Society and the Anarchist Communist Group!

Please get in touch if you are interest in a stall.

Venue: Mechanics Institute,  3 North Sherwood St, Nottingham NG1 4EZ.

The Mechanics Institute rooms are full accessible.

Free, not tickets or booking required.

Last years talks concentrated on class, labour history and race with speakers including Priyamvada Gopal, Animik Saha, the group behind Prison: a survival guide and Five Leaves’ own Andrew Graves. Previous radical bookfairs have included talks on diversity in children’s picture books and travels in Eastern Europe! What will we do in 2020?

Speakers in 2020 include Dana Mills on Rosa Luxemburg
