Cunard Building, L3 1DS Liverpool
The evening will explore issues such as the importance of musical movements including Rock Against Racism, the 2Tone movement and Red Wedge, and asks whether we could see a group of leading musicians agitating for social and political change in the current turbulent political climate.

As a bonus, we will be include a rare screening of ‘Days Like These’ a documentary charting the 1986 Red Wedge tour. Featuring the likes of Paul Weller, Billy Bragg, Johnny Marr and others, the film examines how musicians joined together to politicise young people and encourage them to vote against Margaret Thatcher in the 1987 general election.
