After the big march, a big night out….
Saturday 26 March is the day of the TUC March for an Alternative. At the end of a day’s marching Philosophy Football is organising, in association with the TUC, a big night out. Headlined by the superb spoken word beats of Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, with the brilliant comedy of Josie Long, the show is opened by the surreal juggling of Rod Laver. And after the acts have finished the Melstars: Music soundsystem provide an upbeat set to fill the dancefloor.
Its a fantastic bill. The night starts with a specially commissioned film of the day’s march introduced by TUC Deputy-General Secretary Frances O’Grady. And reviewing the politics of protest a panel of speakers featuring Guardian columnist Zoe Williams, London Citizens organiser and academic Maurice Glasman, student activist Jessica Riches and Unison National Secretary for Local Government Heather Wakefield.
The show starts at 7pm , and is the perfect way to complete the day. It will be taking place at the excellent theatre-pub, The New Red Lion 271 City Road, London EC1. The nearest tube is The Angel and it is handy to get to from the end of the demo.
Tickets available here. Or you can phone to book on 020 8802 3499. Do book early, this is going to be very, very popular.
