Tickets are now available for this year's Revolution festival, where we'll be commemorating Britain's revolutionary history. Book your place now!

Revolution 2019 is a three-day festival of Marxist ideas, hosted in London by Socialist Appeal, with talks and discussions on current events, history, philosophy, and economics.

This year's event commemorates Britain's revolutionary history - from the 19th century Chartist movement, to the 1926 general strike, to the political battles taking place at the present time.

With the status quo collapsing all around us, these movements provide valuable and inspiring lessons for activists looking to organise, fight, and transform the world today.

Buy your ticket now for this exciting festival and join the revolution!
