Music, Football, Politics: Revolutionary Spirit in Dundee

Join an in-conversation event with Pat Nevin (ex-footballer), Denise Christie (Scottish Trades Union Congress) and Paul Simpson (Teardrop Explodes). The event will celebrate working class culture covering the themes of music, football and politics. There will also be an opportunity to buy signed copies of Pat’s and Paul’s books.

Paul Simpson said:

“I last played in Dundee at the Dance Factory back in 1988 with The Wild Swans. In true revolutionary spirit, it feels apt to return as part of the city’s Speak Oot festival.”

Billy Singh Campaign Manager Show Racism the Red Card said:

“As the UK’s leading anti-racist education charity Show Racism the Red Card are very aware of the positive impact music, sport and the trade union movement can play in changing hearts and minds. Since our formation in 1996 we have engaged with over 1.2 million learners. Football in particular has been a catalyst for many of those conversations.

We are looking forward to what promises to be fantastic event and listening from insightful conversations from our three esteemed guests.”

This unique event will take place in The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum on Thursday 25th April 2024 at 7pm and is organised by Show Racism the Red Card and Scottish Union Learning. The event is free but ticketed. To book a place, visit rev-spirit-dundee.eventbrite.co.uk
This event is one of many events organised throughout Dundee as part of the Speak Oot festival running from 13th April until 28th April 2024. It is the first festival of its kind in Dundee and is focused on celebrating the contribution of trade unions and their values to the city and beyond.
