We are delighted to announce that With Banners Held High will return in 2019 for its second year, in the new format, beginning with an even bigger procession through the streets of Wakefield City Centre. WBHH2018 was extremely well attended and we encourage even larger numbers for 2019.

A full day of talks, debate, theatre, film and music celebrating the British Labour and Trade Union movement, which, provoked by generations of struggle, has created a rich cultural heritage.

The theme of the day will be A Land Fit For Heroes? We will consider the aftermath of World War One from the perspective of the working class, trade unions and Labour Movement as a whole and by harnessing contemporary social and political injustices as comparison, we will explore how the fundamental issues which were present within the inter-war period, are still visible today. Moreover, the event will welcome the Labour Party pledge to repeal the Trade Union Act 2016 – an Act which originates from the inter-war period (1926) – and that the implementation of such, could and should, be our ‘Red Friday’.
