Despite any concerns that may have been raised, the sale of approximately 1,000 Banksy Molotov posters took place on Saturday May 7th amongst much good humour, and without incident, as several organisations including PRSC, Coexist, Bookfair organisers and Banksy’s people worked together to ensure that all went off peacefully. The book fair was rammed all day, Canteen was busy, and PRSC offered tea and cakes free or by donation all day. The queue, estimated at 400, snaked down Stokes Croft and along City Road, stewarded by Green Security, and aided by volunteers from PRSC.

During the day, a representative from Bristol City Museum requested a poster for their Permanent Collection.

Posters changed hands later the same day on eBay for up to £150.

The queue at 7am, three and a half hours before the sale.
