Open This Saturday 3:00-6:00

Open Saturday 3:00 till 6:00.

Come on down if you’ve got nothing better to do,  we’re not just a hangover cure, we also do books.

Recently due to the beginning of the new academic year a lot of our staff have become a lot busier, so sadly recently we have not been able to open Saturdays, for the same reason we have not been concentrating on organising events in the evening. If you have any time to spare please consider filling in our volunteers form, or popping in this Saturday.

Thanks for all your support over the last months!

21/03/2012: Introducing the Bristol Pound

The Bristol Pound is a secure local currency designed to support Bristol’s independent businesses, strengthen the local economy, keep our high streets diverse and distinct, helping build a strong community.

Speakers from the Bristol Pound scheme will introduce the idea, how it works and where its happening. This will be followed by a question and answer session where we can explore the benefits of the £B for local traders and the wider community.

Time: 7.30pm – 9.30pm

Reference Section

The Hydra now has a reference section including works over 70 years old so come and drink coffee and read some great political analysis from times gone by right up to now.  We have copies of the new left review dating back to the early 60’s  with essays from now greats so we can see how they’ve changed.
