    Building on the annual Friends of Durham Miners’ Gala fundraising dinner, Redhills and Left Book Club present an event marking the 40th anniversary of the 1984/85 Miners’ strike.

The most famous being the relationship with Lesbians and Gay Support the Miners, the story of which is celebrated in the film Pride.

    Manchester reading group (March)

    in person · Starts at 1:30 p.m. GMT · 3 weeks, 6 days from now
    Left Book Club is a not-for-profit book subscription featuring some of the best radical writing published as collectible editions. Each month the Manchester reading group meets up to discuss a book that explores anticapitalist or progressive ideas and how we might relate them to our own lives now.

    Reading for this month is Radical Intimacy by Sophie K Rosa. Location will be at the People's History Museum (ask at the front desk). All welcome! If you've not read the book, then please feel welcome to come to contribute.

    Our intimate lives are the source of our heaviest suffering and deepest joy. Capitalism tells us we should live a certain way – but is this really what most of us want? Pointing the way forward to different ways of living, Radical Intimacy is an inspiring and compassionate antidote to a callous society.
