Who's Going Already

Camila & Chris will be staffing the Radical Anthropology Group Stall


Question: Do We Want A Dancing on the Grave of Capitalism! Stall?

From www.anarchistbookfair.org/booking.html, reteieved Tue 10 Oct 08

We are still taking bookings for the last few stalls, but we are not taking any more bookings for meetings or adverts as we are now full

Last year we had 88 stalls (up from 77 the year before). We are aiming for about the same this year. Last year we made a £900 loss, but a number of people helped out with donations and benefits so in the end we broke even. Therefore, we can keep the cost of both stalls and meetings the same as last year.

Stalls are £45 for a table which is roughly 5ft x 2ft. You can book half a stall for £22.50.

If you are prepared to give an hours labour contribution during the day (giving out programmes, rattling collection buckets, etc) we will reduce the cost of a full stall to £40 (£20 for ½ stalls).

If you want to book a stall just click here for a copy, fill out the form and post it back with a cheque. Bookings are confirmed when payment is received. You can also pay by paypal below.

It is possible for your booking to be rejected (Trots/people in political parties, please note). Also, because of the shortage of space, you may not get as much space as you asked for.


Stall Hire Criteria

IMO (Tim) it's only worth doing if we have:

  • sufficient Budget
  • at least one volunteer to set up the Dancing on the Grave of Capitalism! stall, 09:00-10:00
  • at least two volunteers to staff the stall for the duration, 10:00-19:00
  • a Poster and plenty of Flyers

I've not been to the Anarchist Bookfair before, but it looks like a great event at which we're all likely to find many stimulating folks (like John Pilger & Paul Mason), talks, and discussions, le alone books!

So if you can volunteer to put in time on a Dancing on the Grave of Capitalism! stall, please indicate by filling in your deails in the table below.
