Melt Thatcher Down Picket
An all-day outdoor event (7am onwards) organised by Pit Dragon, a loose aggregation of performers who came together to entertain the picket-lines during the Miners’ Strike. The poster lists ‘Apples & Snakes Poets’ amongst the other contributors, though it’s not entirely clear whom we sent along.
The event was supported by numerous other arts and agit-prop organisations, as listed at the top of the flyer.
With thanks to Jeff Howarth at TUC Library Collections for reminding us about this one.
