This October sees the highlight of any radical activist's calendar: Revolution 2018 - a three-day festival of Marxist ideas, hosted in London by Socialist Appeal and the International Marxist Tendency.

This annual gathering has become a key event for the revolutionary left, with hundreds attending from across Europe for a weekend of exciting discussions on history, philosophy, economics, and contemporary issues.

To give the festival the prominence it deserves, we have launched a new dedicated website. Head to www.revolutionfestival.co.uk to find out all the information about the event, including the full programme of talks, a timetable for the weekend's sessions, and a portal for buying tickets and booking accommodation.

This year's event commemorates the revolutionary events of 1968 - a year that saw massive movements and protests by workers and students across the world: from the civil rights movement in the USA, to the dramatic events of May '68 in France.

50 years on, with the status quo collapsing all around us, these movements provide important and inspiring lessons for activists looking to organise, fight, and transform the world today.

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