Peter Kropotkin & Brighton’s Radical Heritage: A Centennial Celebration

24 October, 4-10pm, The Latest Music Bar, Manchester Street

The Kropotkin celebration is an all day event, & includes a film that takes us on a tour of Brighton’s radical past, with Bandana companero Jon Mason as our guide.

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.
