Event Description

Following on from the event at Stroud Green & Harringay Library in the Spring, the Haringey First World War Peace Forum are staging a re-enactment of the anti-war meeting held outside the Salisbury at the outbreak of the First World War.

This promises to be a rally with a difference. There will be short speeches from characters in period costume,  including men who went on to be conscientious objectors, suffragettes who opposed the war, working people who had no quarrel with workers from other countries.

There will also be with songs of the period sung by Patricia Hammond (mezzo-soprano), accompanied by Matt Redman (guitar, mandolin-banjo).

More music in The Salisbury afterwards.
