Harrogate Theatre - Wonderful performance

Harrogate Theatre

Wonderful performance

It’s not often that letters on the Arts are printed in the Advertiser so I write to congratulate Harrogate Theatre for the wonderful performance of We Will Be Free last Saturday, highlighting the injustices experienced by the Tolpuddle Martyrs way back in 1834 for seeking a rate of pay their labours deserved.

They are rightly revered by Trade Unionists. This was a fine performance by the cast (of two) and much appreciated by the sell out audience.

It was also quite timely as workers today, in both the public and private sectors are seeing their pay eroded year on year by below inflation rises and pay freezes.

Let’s have more of this kind of performance.
