WORKING CLASS MOVEMENT LIBRARY FUNDRAISER LOOKS TO CHILDREN

Radical Readings 3: Suffer Little Children
Sunday 25th March 2pm

Following on from two incredibly successful, sold out Radical Readings events, the latest fundraiser for the Working Class Movement Library focuses on children, and stars stalwarts Maxine Peake and Mike Joyce, with Andrew Ellis, Nico Mirallegro, Elle Pemberton and Molly Windsor.

Full details here...


Previous events in the Radical Readings series have sold out very quickly, and this latest fundraiser for Salford's Working Class Movement Library should prove no different with another stellar line-up reading extracts from proper history.

Radical Readings 3, taking place on Sunday 25th March at Peel Hall within the University of Salford, is titled Suffer Little Children, and focuses on accounts, stories and poems by and about the children who worked in our mines and factories in the 19th century. 

Joining Readings stalwarts Maxine Peake and Mike Joyce will be Andrew Ellis (This is England), Nico Mirallegro (Rillington Place, Common and The Village), Elle Pemberton and Molly Windsor (Three Girls), introduced by WCML trustee Royston Futter.

"The Library is an amazing place and so deserving of support" says Nico Mirallegro "I'm very excited to be part of this event."

Talking about the Library in a recent television piece, Maxine Peake said: "It is all about learning about your history whether you are to the left or the right. If you speak to anyone who works or volunteers here, they say it's all about fairness, freedom and the people!"

The WCML is a treasure and this much needed fundraiser should be a top afternoon...

THIS IS OUR HISTORY...

Peterloo, the movie, starring Maxine Peake, was premiered in Manchester last night at Home. The Salford Star was not invited but we did manage a non-exclusive twenty second interview with Salford director Mike Leigh on the red carpet, and a viewing at the peasants' overflow on Deansgate. Is it any good? Read our review and that crucial interview with Mike Leigh.
