Event description

Description

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.

Speakers include:

  • 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
