On the 27th November, ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston will take part in a fundraiser at the Working Class Movement Library, Salford.

Eccleston will join award winner Sheila Hancock, Coronation Street star Julie Hesmondhalgh, Smith’s drummer Mike Joyce and acclaimed actress Maxine Peake for an afternoon of prose, poetry and drama. Telling stories on such diverse subjects as Peterloo, the Spanish Civil War, Engels’s view of the Salford slums, and memories of Broad Street and Rat Week.

‘Radical Readings and Salford Stories 2’, a celebration of Salford’s history will take place at Maxwell Hall, University of Salford from 2 till 4pm. This new event follows on from 2014’s fantastically successful fundraiser for the Library.

The Working Class Movement Library is a treasure trove with records of over 200 years of organising and campaigning by ordinary men and women. A charity with a social conscience and a fascinating history.

Tickets for this fundraising event cost £12 (including booking fee and administration costs) and are on sale now at Eventbrite. For any enquiries please contact trustees@wcml.org.uk.  The event is being staged in conjunction with the University of Salford.
