Organised by those experts in putting on a good night out, aka Philosophy Football   who have teamed up with the People's Assembly and the RMT supported by the FBU for ourChristmas Party on Saturday 19 December at East London arts venue Rich Mix.


A seasonal Saturday night out with a headlining stand-up set of razor-sharp wit from Bridget Christie preceded by an in-conversation with Guardian columnist Zoe Williams. Plus sparkling spoken word from poet Salena Godden.

And closing the show Thee Faction playing anthems to dance, or march to and in hot musical pursuit South Coast Ska legends The Meow Meows.

The night won’t beshort of ideas either. Opened by the renowned writer on inequality Danny Dorling an international discussion on austerity and its discontents with Marina Prentoulis of Syriza joined by Shelly Asquith NUS vice-president and leading activist in the victorious #jezwecan campaign. With further contributions by FBU General Secretary Matt Wrack, RMT Senior Assistant General Secretary Steve Hedley, People’s Assembly Co-chair Romayne Phoenix and founder of the Bow Food Bank Chris Rawlins.

Conscious of the enduring popularity of A Christmas Carol and it's essentially radical narrative new work has also been commissioned by artists keenly involved in the anti-austerity movement  to reinterpret  the story as a tale of today.  Photographer Jess Hurd, poet Matt Abbott and musician Nia will be showcasing this work to open the evening.

A night out to finish off twelve months of protest. A night to reflect on the beginnings of a new hope and to prepare for  2016. A night to say to Cameron and Osborne’s  Scroogeonomics, Bah! Humbug


Saturday 19 December, doors open 6pm, show starts 7pm.
