TolpuddleKX – it’s hot stuff!

Martyrs_names April 18 to 25 2009 sees King's Cross hosting a national festival to commemorate the 175th anniversary of the great demonstration in support of the Tolpuddle Martyrs, without whom us workers wouldn't enjoy the rights we have today. Festival organisers have just confirmed three of the events lined up for the week:
20th April Comedy Night with John Hegley
21st April Film Night showing 'Comrades', the story of the martyrs directed by Bill Douglas and starring William Gaminara (of Silent Witness fame) and Keith Allen (Lily's dad) amongst others
25th Big march and outdoor music event with Billy Bragg
The list of festival partners is growing by the day. The big event on Saturday 25th April will be completely free… donations however are not only welcome but much needed. The festival is being organised by local volunteers so please do show your support – no matter how small your donation, every penny will help!
More events are expected to be announced soon as are more special guests. Keep up to date by visiting the festival website.

    I am shocked and saddened to hear the news of Ryan’s passing. I was always happy to see him when he visited our Section at the university (the Secretariat) – his wonderful smile and his unselfish drive to improve all of the subjects that he so passionately believed in. We need many more Ryan Kemps.

    Coolest Dude I ever met!
    Never afraid to say what he genuinely felt whoever the receiver
    Learnt a lot from his passion and vibrancy
    The Grateful Dead has lost its extra band member
