FILM SCREENING & IN CONVERSATION
This cult film documents the 1986 Red Wedge tour, featuring famous musicians encouraging young people to oust Thatcher from government ahead of the 1987 general election.
Filmmakers from five cities across the UK had Access All Areas – on the tour coach, in dressing rooms and hotel rooms – for seven days, capturing stars such as Billy Bragg, Lloyd Cole, Communards, Junior, Phil Jupitus, Madness, Johnny Marr, Tom Robinson, Paul Weller and many more performing, collaborating and campaigning against ‘the darkest days of the Thatcherite 80s’.
A rare screening of the 40-minute film which hasn’t been shown for over 30 years.
Consisting of exclusive in-depth conversations with over 100 contributors and many previously unseen images, Daniel’s book Walls Come Tumbling Down is a fascinating, polyphonic and authoritative account of the rise and fall of three key movements of the time: Rock Against Racism, 2 Tone, and Red Wedge, revealing how they both shaped, and were shaped by, the music of a generation.
