Banner Theatre presents From Saltley Gate to PartyGate

Banner Theatre presents From Saltley Gate to PartyGate

Songs, stories and videos that connect a key trade union victory of the past to the major class conflicts of today. Weaving song, music and video, Banner celebrates the 50th anniversary of the labour movement victory of Saltley Gate, when 20,000 trade unionists walked out to support striking miners. In a massive show of solidarity, they blockaded and shut down the coke depot in Saltley and helped the miners win a 30% pay rise!

As the cost-of-living crisis deepens and ever more draconian legislation is passed to protect the profits of the wealthy, people are fighting back. We tell the inspirational stories of striking bin workers in Coventry, RMT rail strikers, the direct action of Black Lives Matter and Kill the Bill activists, as well as the campaigns to save our NHS and the massively successful farmers' strike in India.

Fantastic, funny, moving, entertaining and educational, strengthened my resolve to fight on. Hayley Garner, UNITE Southampton City Council Branch Secretary
starts at 7pm. Tickets £7 (concessions £5)
