Radical Readings 3 - 'Suffer the little children'

Event location: Peel Hall, University of Salford

Date: 25th Mar 2018

Event time: 14:00 to 16:00

The Working Class Movement Library is proud to present another in its series of Radical Readings fundraising events, this time introducing some of our younger supporters and readers as well as a couple of stalwarts. This year's show consists of accounts, stories and poems by and about the children who worked in our mines and factories in the 19th century.

These will be brought to life by Andrew Ellis (This is England), Nico Mirallegro (Rillington Place, Common, The Village), Elle Pemberton and Molly Windsor (Three Girls) together with ever-present favourites Mike Joyce and Maxine Peake. 

Devised and introduced by Royston Futter, Working Class Movement Library trustee.

Tickets price £12 are available - you can pay on the door, or in advance from https://www.eventbrite.com/e/radical-readings-3-suffer-the-little-children-tickets-42901756308. All proceeds will go to support the Working Class Movement Library.

We are most grateful to the University of Salford for hosting this event. If you have been to previous 'Radical Readings' you should note that this one is not being held in the same venue as earlier ones.  Peel Hall is in the red brick university building on the other side of Salford Museum and Art Gallery from our previous venue.
