Events at Hydra Bookshop


The Hydra is a community bookshop, coffee shop, music venue and meeting/event space  on Old Market in central Bristol. As well as stocking  literature on a wide range of issues, Hydra also serves some of the best gourmet coffee in the city, as well as home-made iced tea, smoothies, and vegan friendly cake/flapjack.

Run by local people as a workers co-operative, the shop grew out of Bristol Radical History Group and similar networks across the city. We also run events and aim to be a place where people can come meet and chat, read, play chess and drink coffee!

The bookshop provides a meeting space, as well as an outlet for independent non-commercial publishers and authors to make their books and ideas accessible to the wider community. These books are on topics ranging from politics, history, feminism, animal rights, environmentalism to novels and biographies as well as pamphlets and magazines that it may be difficult to track down in the usual high-street bookshops (if you can find one!)

Are you looking for a place to hold an event or are you part of a group looking for somewhere to have meetings in Bristol?
One of the major aims of the Hydra is to provide a space which can accommodate and promote public events, meetings and discussion.

The room comfortably seats around 35 people and we can also provide a video projector and screen, should you wish to use them. We charge a flat rate of £10 per meeting for regular meetings and £12 per hour for public events.
