SLP members gave support to the 2011 Festival held from 15th to 17th July. The Party had a stall in the main Martyrs’ Marquee which was operated by John Keaveney, Rob Hawkins, friends and family.
Some members stayed in tents on the site but the majority arrived on the Sunday when the main march took place to honour the C19th trade union ‘martyrs’.
The Party was pleased to get its’ message across during the festival and as can be seen from the ‘photo gallery, we displayed our banners in the Sunday march. Some of our members were also attached to trade union delegations.
Overall, we were very pleased with the goodwill shown to the Party from the public who in some cases gave us ideas for future campaigning.
Many thanks to all those who attended and supported us.
