The Albany Studio
In 1868 (when the Trades Union Congress was formed), workers were fighting for union recognition, the end of casual labour, and improvements in working conditions. Sounds familiar?
Spirit of 1868 is a stirring dramatisation of some of the struggles, protests and moments of resistance that shaped our past and our present. Exhilarating folk, blues, punk and reggae rhythms drive the stories of workers standing together in solidarity across a century and a half of strikes and picket lines. A brilliant mix of music, film, humour and politics.
Full Price: £8.00
Age guidance: Considered suitable for ages 14+
