Workers Theatre Weekender: Something Has To Happen

12 – 16 February 2020, Southside, Glasgow

The Workers Theatre is running another festival, and if you like theatre, music, cabaret, socialism, ceilidhs, or the Southside of Glasgow, then you should come to it! We’re a workers coop dedicated to liberating art and you can buy a pass for all 19 events for just £32

The Festival is called SOMETHING HAS TO HAPPEN. Well, because, something has to happen! In our communities, our work places, our relationships, our climate. And we’ve got 5 days of art, discussions, parties and workshops to help show us how!

From a Transylvanian Ceilidh, to a show about unionising bees, we’ve got radical art for everyone and there’s a discount on tickets for members of all trade unions, with unwaged tickets available for £3 per event.

All our venues are also accessible and inclusive, and we will have more information very soon about which events will be BSL interpreted and have a hearing loop. But please get in touch if there’s an event you would like us to provide that for and we will sort it.
