As a political and social activist campaigning for a better world, free from war and poverty, Tony Benn was an inspiration and guide over many decades. He was president of Stop the War Coalition from its founding in 2001 until the day he died, 14 March 2014.

Tony Benn said shortly before he died, "All I would want on my gravestone would be: 'Here Lies Tony Benn: He Encouraged Us.'" He certainly did, and this event with speeches, film, music, poetry and humour will be a celebration of the encouragement he gave us. Early booking is advisable.
