Btw rooms & pas cost a bit, so we’re charging for the bands. If you really can’t afford it just say so. We’re asking for donations at other events to cover costs. In the unlikely event that we are showered with riches we’ll pass spare dosh to the following organisations (in no order of preference):
•• Lancaster & District Coalition against The war
•• Simon Jones memorial campaign
•• Lancashire anti-fascist network
•• Clarets United (anti-fash Burnley fans)
•• refugee support groups
If you have any objections...don’t bother coming!
