On the 8th November we are proud to be putting on a night at the trade union pub, the Bread and Roses in Clapham, to mark both 30 years since the Miner’s Strike and to build unity with current struggles like the dispute in the NHS.
Those who have been to a Militant Entertainment event at the Bread and Roses before will know that you can expect a night of highly-charged energy and a chance to celebrate the spirit of solidarity.
Headlining we have the Clones, fronted by Steve North from London’s Burning, Meeting Joe Strummer and Warhorse amongst others, and backed by various faces that you may well recognise from tv and stage. They will be playing a set of covers ranging from the Ramones, to the Ruts and the Clash.
Supporting will be Dirt Royal, a young band from Brighton, drenched in the sweat and social commentary of the early Jam. They won’t disappoint.
Comrade X, yep that’s me, will be doing the old Woody Guthrie meets the Angelic Upstarts mash-up and the Lone Groover completes the card with his unique blend of Dylan, Strummer and Bragg. We will also have some special guests lined up for the night.
It’s free to get in but we hope to raise a few quid for the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign by selling a bit of merch and if anyone wants to donate to the nights costs any surplus will also go to the Orgreave comrades.
All we are asking you to do is spread the word, a flyer is attached and there is a facebook event page here:
Hope to see you there,
For Militant Entertainment
