Swindon GMB have produced a 30 minute documentary of the 2010 Tolpuddle festival, which is free for anyone who wants a copy. The trailer above gives you a taste of it. Please contact the GMB office and we will post it to you.
This year’s 2011 Tolpuddle Festival (15th to 17th July 2011) has a fantastic line up of entertainment.The festival is organised by South West TUC to commemorate the Tolpuddle Martyrs, a group of brave men who defied the law to form a trade union in 1834, at a time when working women and men had few legal rights.
The festival is FREE on Sunday 17th July, and GMB are organising a FREE coach from Swindon and Salisbury. This will leave from Swindon Bus station at 9:00 am, and from Salisbury bus station at 10:00 am. Please ring the office on 01793 818005 to book a place.
In addition, we have made an arrangement with Wiltshire UNISON that GMB members can go FREE on their coach from Trowbridge. To arrange a place on the UNISON coach you must ring 01225 774987 in advance to book.
