Event: Remembering the 1968 Revolts – 3rd June 2018

Join us for a film screening, an exhibition of original sources and a panel session of people sharing their memories of struggles fought here in Nottingham during that iconic year, which saw deeply-rooted conflicts erupt into open revolts all around the globe.

Sunday, 3rd June 2018

From Midday at Broadway Cinema, Nottingham.

Midday-2pm film screening of “if….” (ticketed)

2-3pm browse our exhibition (free)

3-5pm panel session (free)

Please note that spaces for the panel session are limited (first come, first served).

From Midday to 2pm there will be a screening of “if….”, followed by an hour (2-3pm) to have some lunch and browse our exhibition of fantastic source materials (pamphlets, newssheets, posters, unpublished correspondence, etc.) documenting the 1968 Revolts in Paris, Berlin, Prague (etc.), and of course events here in Nottingham. At 3pm we will get together for a panel session with people sharing some of their memories of the struggles fought in Nottingham in 1968 (spoilers: the struggle for equal pay and anti-racist work were already high on the agenda five decades ago!).

The film screening is ticketed. You will be able to purchase tickets from Broadway Cinema at their usual rates from early May. We have a very limited number of discounted tickets available. If you would like us to reserve you one of these tickets, please do get in touch (please note, if you do not get a response email confirming your reservation before Sunday 6th May, you are not on the list and will have to purchase a ticket from the Broadway Box Office). The exhibition and the panel session are of course free of charge.

You can already browse digitised original sources in the Sparrows’ Nest Digital Library.

Organised with support from: People’s Histreh – Nottingham and Notts Radical History Group, The Sparrows’ Nest Library and Archive, Nottingham Women’s History Group, Five Leaves Bookshop and a bunch of awesome individuals (thank you all!).

Please also note that Five Leaves have also organised an event to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Revolts on Thursday, 10th May.
