Ewan MacColl will be known to most people as a songwriter and singer, but he was also of significant influence in the worlds of theatre and radio broadcasting. He was a committed socialist all his life and his political sensibilities underpinned all his creative activities.

The Working Class Movement Library is located in MacColl’s home town of Salford. The Library's holdings include material from all aspects of Ewan's political and cultural life (you can search the catalogue here). These pages are an exploration, in greater or lesser depth, of that material.

We need to raise an extra £90,000 each year.

We need your help to maintain the momentum of the huge increases in usage of the Library over the last few years. Can you help?
