On May 12th 2010, the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrat Party agreed to form a coalition government and instigated a wave of austerity measures that punished the poorest in society. To mark 10 years of solidarity and resistance against Tory rule, we’re hosting a celebratory gig of music, poetry and good vibes.
Alex T was a dear friend of all of us, gracing the decks here as recently as November, and the dancefloor many more times before. Within a month of arriving in York, he made himself an integral part of the scene; no party or afters was complete without him. His untimely passing left a massive impact on the UK scene as a whole: so we thought it would be a great idea to throw a party to celebrate his formative time here in York, and raise some money for Meningitis Now. All are welcome!
