The Bob Tressell Lecture 2017
Fri 28 April 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Returning for its second year, The Bob Tressell Festival 2017 promises to be Liverpool's socialist event of the year.
The evening will explore how far (or not) we have come since Robert Tressell's seminal work The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists was written at the start of the 20th Century, and how it compares to modern-day Britain under the Tory Government's policy of austerity.
- John McDonnell, Labour Party MP and Shadow Chancellor
- Tosh McDonald, President of ASLEF
- Rebecca Long Bailey (TBC) Labour Party MP and Shadow Minister For Business
Music and performances will also include:
- Singer/Songwriter Stephen Smith
- A live interactive performance of The Great Money Trick
