Alternative Burns Night success
Brent Kennedy, Carlisle Socialist Party
Some came by word of mouth. Others saw our posters, read the article in the local paper or heard the interview on BBC Radio Cumbria.
It was another successful and enjoyable Alternative Burns Night in Carlisle. This year was the best yet.
Over 60 people tucked into haggis, neeps and tatties - including a group of factory workers from over the border, who again honoured us Sassenachs by choosing this event for their work's outing.
At the end, many went home with a copy of the Socialist or Socialism Today to read more about the poet fighter for social justice.
As far back as 1859, "in Carlisle a call was made for an entertainment to which Burns himself could have come when at his poorest estate and a meeting was got up and conducted by working men."
Just add the word 'women' and we're proud to have revived that tradition.
