The gig at The Standard features a cracking line-up of left-wing entertainment. Confirmed to play so far are local folk/punks Steve White & The Protest Family and the Socialist magician Ian Saville. Mark Thomas is performing as part of his “Extreme Rambling: Walking the Wall” tour, about which more information can be found here.
It promises to be a great night and it’s fantastic to see a big name act coming to Walthamstow. Stow Scene saw Mark Thomas supported by Asian Dub Foundation at Watermans Art Centre in Brentford back in the day and it was a fantastic night, so we’re definitely looking forward to this one.
The evening is hosted by Russ Chandler from Walthamstow Folk Club. Tickets are £10 and all proceeds go towards the FBU Hardship Fund, so it’s in a good cause (as you’d expect). Tickets are available from the venue or from here.
