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.
