Radical Readings.

Location : Peel Hall, University of Salford

Start date : 23rd November 2014

End date : 23rd November 2014

Join Christopher Eccleston, Sheila Hancock and Maxine Peake for an afternoon of prose, poetry and drama telling the story of radicalism and revolution and the history of the original "dirty old town".  Expect to be entertained by some of our greatest poets and by many of the writers that we associate with Salford, from Walter Greenwood to Tony Warren and from Robert Roberts to Shelagh Delaney.  Who knows, we may even hear from Henry Hobson, Harold Brighouse's most famous creation.

The event takes place at Peel Hall, Peel Building, University Of Salford, Salford M5 4WU, starting at 2pm.  This is a fundraising event for the Library, and tickets are £12 (£8 student concessions).  Tickets are available from the University of Salford online shop here.  For enquiries please contact the University events team on 0161 295 5241, or email  Please do not contact the Library about tickets.

An event staged in conjunction with the University of Salford - the Library is very grateful for their support.

Please note that Julie Hesmondhalgh, whose name appeared on the initial flyers for the event, is very disappointed no longer to be able to participate due to work commitments in London.
