Get ready for another BASE film night on Sunday 24th (World Day for Laboratory Animals) after the spectacular BASE Cafe Dinner! Come fill your belly then get cozy & watch THE HERD along with TRUST & MBR ACRES, films by Melanie Light, Activist and Film Director.
Kebele General Meetings are an opportunity for the wider Kebele community and users of the building/facilities to come together to hold the Co-op to account, find out more about Kebele, discuss any urgent and/or relevant issues, and volunteer to help with ongoing matters (cleaning, maintenance, cafes, outreach etc) and at any upcoming events. So the Agenda may include:
– recent decisions by the Community Co-op, any new proposals, and get an update on Kebele’s finances. – any urgent matters relating to Kebele, be they practical (the loo is leaking!) or political. – review any recent events at Kebele, and discuss any forthcoming events that need wider involvement/support to ensure they happen. – there is sometimes a political discussion for a part of the meeting.
The actual Agenda is posted on the wall in the Kebele cafe – where you can add items, and emailed out to our volunteers list. There is usually cake and/or snacks, and hot drinks, available.
General meetings are facilitated (not chaired) by a volunteer, and any decisions are made via consensus decision-making practices (see here for info).
Find out more about Kebele – read OurStory and other pages on this website.
Note that the Kebele social centre is formally owned & managed by Kebele Community Co-op. So get involved….new volunteers wishing to become Co-Op members are always welcome!!!
Bristol Against the Arms Trade (BAAT) presents: From the Slave Trade to the Arms Industry Bristolians played an active part in abolishing the slave trade, despite the economic benefits it had for the city.

Running virtually every Sunday for more than 20 years, the Sunday Social and Vegan Cafe sums up the essence of Kebele social centre – DIY, healthy food, politics and community. Read OurStory for the full rundown on those 20 years! Cafe proceeds help Kebele stay open, alive & kicking!
Each week from around 3pm a team of volunteers prepares and cooks a set vegan meal for about 50 people. The ingredients come from donations, local shops & markets, local food projects, and we bulk buy some ingredients from the Essential Trading Co-op.
We start serving by 6.30pm…until it runs out, which depends on how early people come! We ask for a donation of approx £2.50 for starter & main, and £1 for puddings. Hot/cold drinks available for 50p. We do not turn people away who are skint – please just say so and you’ll be fed. Perhaps you can contribute in some other way?
We always welcome new volunteers to help cook for the cafe, and to wash up & clean up after. If you’d like to get involved then speak to one of the cooks or the host, or ask for a Co-op member.
Sometimes before, but usually around 7.30pm after dinner, there may be a film; sometimes a talk or discussion; and sometimes music. There may also be campaign or project group meetings upstairs. There’s always plenty of people to chat with, socialise & network. You can also check out Kebele’s free library (borrow a book!) and Info Shop (buy a book, pamphlet or CD!), use the free wi-fi, plus there’s loadsa free info on local campaigns & events. We stay open until around 9.30pm.
