The MU will once again have a stand at this year’s Tolpuddle Martyrs festival which is running from 14-16 July. The festival commemorates the bravery of the martyrs' struggle against poverty and authority.
This annual event sees thousands of trade unionists from around the UK and the world descending on the small village of Tolpuddle in Dorset to celebrate the memory of the Tolpuddle Martyrs and the legacy they left behind. The Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Festival reflects the spirit of those prepared to stand up and be counted, and for those just learning about its history. It is a joyful celebration of solidarity.
The festival promises a wide range of music and speakers and MU Regional Organiser Andy Warnock will be available over the weekend.
On Sunday 16 July we will be marching at 2:00 pm and if you would like to join us for the march please let us know by emailing cardiff@theMU.org.
Visit the Tolpuddle Martyrs website for more details on the festival, and do come and say hello!
