Buy tickets with WeGotTickets

Robb Johnson:

Highly acclaimed UK singer-songwriter Robb Johnson headlines this day of celebration of ‘The Anarchist Prince’, his historical connections to Brighton and the enduring relevance of his thought, playing a range of his folk protest classics. In 2018 Robb released Ordinary Giants, a critically acclaimed 3 CD song suite based on his father’s life & times. Robb was also commissioned to perform the songs for Hartlepool’s 2019 Festival concert Your Affectionate Son.

“An English original” (Robin Denselow, The Guardian)
“one of our best singer-songwriters ever” (Mike Harding, Music Journalist)
“a wonderful mixture of the personal & political… A really moving piece of work” (Billy Bragg on Gentle Men song suite)

 

Peter Kropotkin:

Peter Kropotkin was the foremost theorist of the anarchist movement, with books continuing to influence those seeking a society based on freedom, equality and mutual aid. This October to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of his death and to introduce his ideas to a wider audience, we are hosting a celebration of the ‘Anarchist Prince’. Spending some of his years in exile in Brighton, Kropotkin’s life is woven into the rich history of the Kemp Town area. A geographer by profession, Kropotkin was also a forerunner of today’s ecologists and one of the first to challenge Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest with his insistence that humans also co-operate to survive- a notion that grew into the widespread philosophy of Mutual Aid.

 

Programme of Events:

4.00 Doors open: Bookshop Stall & authors. Bar & Snacks available

4.30  Guest Speakers including Professor Brian Morris, anthropologist and author of The Anarchist Geographer (2007) plus other talks on Kropotkin & the continuing relevance of his environmental, political & social theories

5.30 Film of Brighton’s socialist history walk by Jon Mason  social history researcher and professional storyteller.

7.00 Robb Johnson Set
