United We Stand at North Edinburgh Arts

Posted on 10/10/2014 by


buildersTownsend Theatre Productions are bringing their latest play to North Edinburgh Arts Centre next Friday (17  October).  Their last two plays – ‘The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists’ and ‘We Will Be Free’, about the Tolpuddle Martyrs –  were brilliant and attracted a full house.

United We Stand is  based on the true story of the 1972 Builders Strike and the Shrewsbury 24 who were prosecuted for their involvement in the strike.  The Shrewsbury Campaign, led by Ricky Tomlinson,  is still seeking to overturn the unjust prosecution of the 24 workers.

We are hoping for a full house next Friday so if you want a ticket for yourself or a group you run or are involved in, please contact  either the Arts Centre on 315 2151 or email me asap.  The tickets are £8 full price, £5 concession and £3 good neighbour (you must live locally and have a Good Neighbour card which is free).

I am running a bus which will do pick ups  throughout the area.  Please let me know if anyone you know who requires transport to get there and back.

The play starts at 7.30 sharp but the bar is open from 6.30 to allow people to meet and have a blether before the play.

Hope to see you next week.
