Tony Benn To Appear At Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival

Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival

12:02am 7th July 2013

A Historic Dorset festival is inviting you to mix music with politics this summer.

The Tolpuddle Martyrs' Festival is a three day event starting on the 19th of July, and it will feature speakers such as the leader of the Green Party and former Labour MP Tony Benn.

The focus for trade unions and talks at the event this year will be low pay, the Trade Union Council is campaigning for pay to be raised in the belief this'll raise the economy out of recession.

There'll also be music from local star Billy Bragg and ska band The Skints.

Wessex FM spoke to organiser Nigel Costley who told us, "Tolpuddle resonates not just around Dorset, and not just around Britain, but around the World."
