Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

The Bow Matchwomen's groundbreaking strike of 1888, which we celebrate every year, was friendship and sisterhood in action: they understood that 'We are many, they are few'.

With no union, no money and no job security, they took action to defend one sacked girl, and ended up facing down one of the country's most powerful employers. Their unexpected victory began a social movement from which the new union movment sprang, eventually leading to the founding of the Labour Party.

For our 6th annual festival we will take inspiration from each other, and from speakers of diverse gifts who have one thing in common: they never, ever give up!
