The 2024 festival is over! We hope you learned a lot, had a blast, and left feeling more confident to get involved in political organising. Understanding the world is important - but the point is to change it.

But you don't have to wait a whole year before our next event. We hold regular smaller events throughout the year - check out the upcoming events below. And if you want to help bring more events like this to Bristol, sign up as a BT volunteer today. Everything is run by people like you volunteering our time!

Solidarity with Palestine

This vital new campaign was announced at the closing session of our festival - local people are supporting Palestinian liberation by organising a boycott of Israeli goods across Bristol. 

You can sign up here to build the campaign. Solidarity is an action.

What is Bristol Transformed?

Bristol Transformed is a grassroots and volunteer-led festival of radical politics, arts and culture: bringing together activists, trade unionists, leading thinkers and anyone interested in left-wing politics. We’re creating the space to discuss the most important issues facing us, equipping us with the skills and knowledge to transform Bristol and the world.

Our socialist education runs all year round - book launches, workshops, reading groups, social events, and more. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to see what's coming up, and join our Discord server or the BT Brain Trust on Facebook to share educational content and ask all your questions in a friendly socialist space.
