7th - 8th of April for Take Back Control

Hi Peter,

Ken Loach, Diane Abbott, Dawn Foster and more are coming to Croydon on the 7th - 8th of April for Take Back Control, the first in a series of events bringing together leave and remain voters to make sense of Brexit, take back control from the establishment and bring power back to our communities.
Get your ticket here, now
The day will be a mixture of talks, workshops, exhibitions, food and parties, with other dates in Tower Hamlets, Plymouth, Bradford, Hastings, Barnsley, Norfolk, Dagenham & York.

Another Europe is Possible will be hosting a session listening to your Brexit demands, and working out how we can build towards a people’s deal.

Other highlights include:
  • A screening of  I, Daniel Blake followed by a Q+A with Ken Loach on Friday 7th April.
  • Diane Abbott in conversation with mercury prize nominee Soweto Kinch and journalist Maya Goodfellow on the role of identity and immigration in the Brexit debate.
  • Guardian Journalist Dawn Foster along with local housing activists exploring how we can beat the housing crisis in London.
  • Award winning playwright James Fritz leading an interactive read through of his new play Comment is Free, hailed by critics as “a fiercely current, socially relevant and dramatic depiction of free speech and mob mentality”.
  • Founder of Bursary or Bust Danielle Tiplady, head of Croydon council Tony Newman and Independent journalist Youssef El Gingihy discussing the crisis in the NHS, social care and what we can do about it.
  • Nick Dearden, the director of Global Justice Now, will be hosting a session explaining how the government’s approach to post-brexit trade deals will effect you.
  • A social space with art exhibitions, ping pong, food, live performances and film throughout the day.

There’ll also be a #rumbleinthecronx after party featuring Soweto Kinch, live hip hop and poetry from Shay D and Juliette Burton performing "Decision Time", her show on living with mental health and which recently sold out in Leicester Square.
See you in Croydon on Saturday,

Another Europe is Possible
