The Welcome to Manchester Party – Sat 3 October 2015
We are very excited that PHM Radical Hero Billy Bragg will be headlining a special gig at the museum on Saturday 3 October 2015 with the People’s Assembly and We Shall Overcome. Curated by musician Sam Duckworth (FKA Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly), the Welcome to Manchester Party will bring together top political music and poetry, including Billy Lunn (The Subways), Brigitte Aphrodite, The Lottery Winners, Seán McGowan, Eat the Evidence, Tim OT, Longy, Josiah Mortimer, Ben Mellor and English Disco Lovers.
It is one of 250 We Shall Overcome events that will go ahead across the UK on the same weekend, to support people affected by government cuts and to raise funds and encourage donations to foodbanks. Join our ‘Reverse Supermarket Sweep’ and bring along food for Manchester South Central Food Bank; see their shopping list for what’s needed. A foreign currency exchange will also be open for donations of unwanted currency to help displaced people.
All proceeds from ticket sales will go to support the People’s History Museum, Women for Refugee Women and the People’s Assembly. Tickets are selling fast, so book now!
