Stuart Maconie: Jarrow; Road to the Deep South at Waterside Arts, Manchester, 23 May 2018, from £13.00 - Book now

Last year, acclaimed writer and broadcaster Stuart Maconie walked 300 miles from Jarrow in the North East to London, in order to retrace the steps of the famous Jarrow Crusade of 1936 – a march by 200 men to protest against mass unemployment and extreme poverty in a society facing a growing problem of inequality, injustice and the rise of fascist tendencies. Sound familiar? Well, when Stuart made the trip 80 years on in a Brexit-divided country, he found many similarities, from austerity to affluence, and recorded them in his new tome Long Road From Jarrow: A Journey Through Britain Then And Now. Drawing on his observations and tales from the book, from choral evensong to curry house, Stuart is now touring a new live show called Jarrow; Road To The Deep South, and this is it: an entertaining, impassioned and enlightening reflection of his journey down the country.

 

This event starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £13 concessions, £15 full price. Contact Waterside box office for details: 0161 912 5616.
