Newsflash 9.10.14 This event is now SOLD OUT - sorry if you have missed out...
Newsflash two 10.11.14 The Working Class Movement Library is sorry to have to announce that Christopher Eccleston will not be able to take his place on stage with Maxine Peake and Sheila Hancock for the already sold out Radical Readings event on Sunday 23 November. He apologises to everyone but has not been able to get out of a revised filming schedule that weekend.
Chris has been replaced, in an inspired if slightly surreal suggestion from Maxine who recently worked on radio with him, by another local legend Mike Joyce of The Smiths, who says he is very much looking forward to it.
An afternoon of prose, poetry and drama telling the story of radicalism and revolution and the history of the original "dirty old town".
Featuring Christopher Eccleston, Sheila Hancock and Maxine Peake.
Event date : 6th Aug 2014
