Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival


Audrey returns to this wonderful event near Dorchester. This will be the 6th year that we have attended the impressive festival. This festival in Tolpuddle celebrates the story of the 6 martyrs and has been running in one form or another since 1875. In it’s present form the festival was developed in 1997 by Nigel Costley the new South West TUC Regional Secretary, with the help of Dick Muskett from the Workers Beer Company. Today the festival ranks with The Durham Miners Gala and Levellers Day in Burford, Oxfordshire, as one the key summer events in the annual calendar of the UK Left. Music, theatre and dance have been well represented at the festival since 1997 and the possibility of incorporating radical film into the festival has been on the agenda for many years. In 2014 the formation of The Radical Film Network and Public Domain Productionscoincided with the restoration of the Vintage Mobile Cinema and collaboration with GorillaCinema to make the ambition for film at Tolpuddle into a reality.
