A special guided walk round locations connected with Manchester's history as a centre for radical political activity. The walk is in aid of Freedom from Torture; there will be an opportunity to learn more about the organisation after the walk.
Places are limited - you can book on line at www.freedomfromtorture.org/events/8042. Whether or not you're able to come, I'd be really grateful if you could circulate the flyer among your friends and other contacts.
A new play that gives an alternative, radical and anti-war view of the WWI centenary.
In 1914 the young men and women of Huddersfield Socialist Sunday School believe passionately in a better world. Inspired by the revolutionary art, music and literature of the times, Arthur Gardiner and Percy Ellis refuse to take arms against their fellow workers and fight in the First World War.
Buoyed on by the support of their community, both at home and abroad, they take on the military in a momentous battle. They suffer prison and brutality, and are taken to breaking point in a war of wills.
It costs them everything - except their conscience.

Inspired by the book 'Comrades In Conscience', by Cyril Pearce, drawing on Jill Liddington's story of the Northern women's suffrage movement, 'Rebel Girls', and using first hand source material, England, Arise! brings to life a world of young people full of ideas, good humour and optimism for a brighter tomorrow.
For them power comes from knowledge, not a gun.
This is a story of hope.
