The Bristol Cable is media co-operative – created and owned by over 2000 (and counting) people in the city. With free events and trainings, a multimedia website and a free quarterly print edition, The Bristol Cable is redefining local journalism through challenging multimedia, community action and cooperative ownership. Online, in print and on the street.

The Bristol Cable is an internationally recognised pioneer in building a new model for journalism. We – 2000 members (and growing) – are changing what local media looks like: in what we produce, how it’s produced, and who owns it.
Today, we are sending out copies of the magazine out to hundreds of Cable members. To get yours through the post, become a member and pay £3 or more a month. Otherwise, copies will be available for free from hundreds of venues across Bristol within the next week or so.
